Qleetinal 



IF you are in college, or if you have children in school, 
your "year" ends in June and a new one begins in 
September. It makes much more sense for me to say "Happy 
New Year" right now, and by this means, than to wait 
until January when it might sound only like an echo. 
Especially to those of you in college, and even more 
especially to those just entering college, this Bulletin 
carries with it my wish that whatever your hopes are, 
may they be more nearly fulfilled this year than ever 
before. I don't wish that all your hopes be gratified, because 
I can't conceive of such a state of things as being either 

possible or desirable. If you really 
want to discover a great deal more 
about anything, whether it be 
economics, or music, or yourself, 
or the universe — then I wish 
you Bon Voyage and good hunt- 
ing! 
In the meantime, at Abbot, we are beginning the year 
with lofty hopes and a certain sense of adventure. We are 
looking forward to knowing better a whole group of new 
girls and the new teachers. We wonder what the combina- 
tion of new and old will produce. We wonder with appre- 
hension what news we will be discussing at the end of 
this year and we hope and pray that the taut nerves of 
the world will have been relaxed. Perhaps what looks now 
like a crisis will appear to us then as a time of compara- 
tive quiet and peace. More hopefully, we shall simply have 
had a few more months to learn how to live in a crisis- 
ridden time. In any event, it still seems important to learn 
and to grow, and to work for the kind of integrity in our 
own lives that we find so lacking in the world as a whole.

Faculty Facts 



We regret to report that several faculty members are not returning 
this year. Miss Marion McEnery, head of the History Department, is 
now Dean of Residence at Rogers Hall. Mrs. David Pynchon of the French 
Department, Mrs. Richard Norwood of the History Department, and 
Mrs. Richard Michelini of the Classics Department have given up 
teaching and are devoting their time to their families. Mrs. Dorothy 
Brown who taught Physical Education and English is teaching in Iowa. 
Mrs. Bond and Mrs. Stevens, housemothers, have also retired. 

There are several new faculty members. Miss Blair Danzoll is teach- 
ing Latin. She received an A.B. degree in Classics from Wheaton College. 
For several summers she was a counselor at the Alford Lake Camp in 
Union, Maine. 

Miss Mary Minard, Abbot '55 and Smith '59, is teaching History. 
She taught at Walnut Hill School for two years. 

Mrs. Thomas Rees is also teaching History. She received a B.A. 
degree from Smith and an A.M. degree from Yale. She served with the 
Red Cross for one year in Korea and the Philippines. She came to Abbot 
from the Hillsdale School in Cincinnati. 

Mrs. John Greeley is teaching French and assisting in the library. 
She received her A.B. degree magna cum laude from Wheaton College

Miss Mildred Hatch retired in 
June, after fifteen years' teaching in 
the Latin Department, and over six 
years as Director of Residence as well. 
Her standards in all spheres of school 
life were high. She was fully as ready 
to give credit where it was due as 
she was to chide when reproof was 
called for. It was a very inconspicuous 
girl indeed who never received from 
Miss Hatch some reminder of the 
way in which she should go. 

Often with humor, always with firmness and fairness, Miss Hatch 
guided the behavior of Abbot girls and their visitors. She may have 
been the despair of lingering boys and parents, but she won their 
respect as she won that of all the school whether in the classroom or 
office. 

Discipline in the sense of order and self-restraint is her way of 
life and the school has been fortunate to be able to witness and 
profit by her work at Abbot. 




Miss Harriet McKee has retired after twenty-two years of teaching at 
Abbot. "Teaching" is a good word but it does not begin to express 
the kind of interest-provoking enthusiasm with which Miss McKee 
filled her classes. Her own joy in the Latin and Greek languages 
could not fail to rouse a matching pleasure in her students. Many 
an alumna remembers the delight of handling the ancient lamps and 

other artifacts Miss McKee kept in 
her classroom; she has generously left 
them so that present students may 
know them too. The Latin "projects" 
of her girls spread their interest 
throughout the school. 

The Abbot Christian Association 
has had for many years the benefit of 
Miss McKee's wise and gentle guid- 
ance. No time or effort was too much 
for her when it was a question of sus- 
taining a girl's need or purpose.

FLYING AIR FORCE NURSE 

by Capt. Margaret R. McFarlin, '42 




This past spring I became enamored with flying and the end of 
May bought a single-engine Taylorcraft. It is a 1946 model and cruises 
about 100 miles an hour. During the summer I finished the require- 
ments for taking the flight test and received my private pilot's license 
two days before I left for home. 

Yes, in September I flew alone from Portland, Oregon to Andover. 
The first two days were beautiful, but after that I trailed hurricane 
Carla for three days through the mid-west. This really slowed me down 
as I was only covering about 200 miles a day instead of 500. Strangely 
enough, the flight over the Rockies was not nearly so difficult as that 
over the mountain ranges of Pennsylvania, where low-hanging clouds 
created a problem. The whole trip took seven days instead of five, but 
it was worth it. I learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed it. 

What was my method of navigation? Pilotage and dead reckoning. 
My only navigational instrument is a compass and I have a radio for 
communications which permits me to land at any airport. My course 
must be plotted accurately before departing. Allowances must be made 
for winds and a careful watch kept for the check points. Some naviga- 
tional devices might make such a flight easier because radio signals 
tell the pilot if he is on course, or to what degree the plane may be off 
course. Without this aid, however, the flight is a greater challenge. 

I am planning to fly back October 2 and hope the weather will 
be fine.

1961 

Hi, everyone! I bet it seems strange not 
to be racing around Abbot's "sacred 
circle" any longer! Now that the new 
school year is in progress, you are prob- 
ably all wondering who has settled their 
banners and posters in your old rooms. 
Undoubtedly that up and coming '62 has 
taken over filling the corridors with rock, 
roll, and general confusion! 

The summer did not pass uneventfully 
for anyone! Our "cultured expatriots" 
all had the time of their lives sampling 
foreign food, and foreign men! (They re- 
ported that both were delicious!) Judy 
Jordan was in Europe for seven weeks and 
there saw Ada Panayatakou (1960) in 
Greece and met Susie Rothwell in Ger- 
many. Sue was on the "Experiment" and 
says, "I would recommend it to every- 
one!" Persis reports that Tinky and Lee 
were chasing around Spain acting as their 
own chaperones . . . and had a wild 
time! "They shopped for all their food 
at the local village markets, and Lee kept 
them healthy with her vitamins." Nina 
Levin said she had an exciting summer in 
Europe. "Greece was made even more 
exciting because I had heard so much 



[29 



about it from Abbot girls last spring." 
She spent six weeks in Geneva with her 
brother, picked up a great deal of French 
and a good tan! Andrea and Linda Lynch 
also toured Europe sailing on the SS 
"Rotterdam" and the SS "Statendam" (my 
ships). "A" said that Ann Tevepaugh 
visited her for a few days and during 
that time they were entertained by Jerry 
Keller (of the "Invictas") on his electric 
guitar! Karin Magid also went European, 
how was it Karin? 

As for those relaxing in American sun; 
Persis decided she would terrorize summer 
school and then vacationed at the La 
Jolla Beach Club for two weeks to regain 
that mental vigor before leaving for 
Scripps College, not Mills as indicated 
in the Supplement. Stevie Stouffer has 
gone "arty" and sketched at the Silver- 
mine Art Guild in Silvermine, Conn. 
She mentioned that she, Carol Ule, Judy 
Purser, Mary Tod Perry, Stevie Davis and 
Suzy Matthews bade Ginny Cadbury a 
champagne Bon Voyage on the Queen 
Elizabeth. Speaking of Ginny, there was 
not a word from our "California or 
Busters" ... did you make it? Marney 
Harriman spent the summer in Maine 
with Grey Hodges and Pat Ware waitres- 
sing at a family camp. She said it was 
loads of fun! Spotty Stringfellow saw 
Scobie Evans and Annie Tevepaugh in 
Richmond (Annie gets around!). She did 
volunteer work at the Red Cross Chapter 
House in Richmond. Her new home ad- 
dress is: 

2011 Monument Ave. 

Richmond, Va. 

Ann's address for this year is: 

Franklin Square House 
11 E. Newton St. 
Boston, Mass. 

Ann Fahnestock sailed her summer 
"windlessly" away in a 31 footer on Long 
Island Sound. Beth Hyde and Sue Fox 
visited her during graduation dance week 
and Molly Bidwell also made the scene. 
Ann said she really bumped into Ann 
Buerger in New York City! Sybil Smith 
was hurriedly packing for her voyage to 
England the last time I heard from her. 
She mentioned that she thought Ginny 
would meet her in Southampton with 
the E.S.U. delegation. She had a mar- 
velous summer 'at home (making piles) 
and is now slaving (?) at St. Helen's 
School. Her address is: 

St. Helen's 
Northwood 
Middlesex, England 



Good Luck, Syb, you make a great 
representative! Terry N. and Toddy P. 
spent the summer studying at Boulder, 
Colorado. Toddy said it was one "veritable 
ball!" Julie Owen spent the summer in 
Canada working on her French. That 
must be quite an accent by now Jules, 
n'est-ce pas? Julie also entertained Sue 
Rothwell, Carol Ule and myself at her 
home before she left — we had a riotous 
time! Janie Sheppard had a fascinating 
time working on the S.S. Hope (a floating 
hospital) in Saigon. She met some in- 
teresting people and dated the officers! 
She is studying Buddhism, sounds like the 
same Janie! I am missing a couple of 
addresses. Tinky and Karyl Kopelman, 
where are you living? Both letters were 
sent back to me . . . I'm waiting to hear 
from you! Sue Fox babysat in Boothbay 
Harbor, Maine. She said she was planning 
to be in the same dorm at Wellesley as 
Sue Wholey (1959). 

Sandy Nicholson spent five wonderful 
weeks in Italy. She said she really saw the 
sights and learned the way of Italian 
life as she lived with an American family 
in Milan. Joan Spurgeon worked hard at 
bookkeeping in a bank. She also spent a 
lot of time riding around Newton. She 
says it is hard to believe that she won't 
be returning to Abbot and all her friends. 
Stevie Davis took a typing course this 
summer so she wouldn't have to struggle 
with that two-finger method so well em- 
ployed at Abbot. She also mentioned 
going to SARDIS after Ginny's farewell 
party with all the other Abbotites. Suzy 
Matthews visited her the last week of 
summer. 

Everyone is very enthusiastic about 
college! I am madly packing last minute 
clothes for school as I go back the 10th 
for "Hockey Week." I spent the summer 
as a swimming instructor at a camp in 
New Hampshire and besides learning a 
great deal, passing Senior lifesaving and 
really learning to waterski, I had a ball! 

A note to those I didn't hear from; 
get on the stick kids! We want to hear 
what all of you are doing for excitement. 
Any engagements yet? 

Greetings and best wishes to the class of 
1960, Mrs. Crane, Mrs. Levo and Miss 
Dains from all of us!

Qneetinai 



OFTEN it is a relief to address oneself to Alumnae, because 
there are too many natural gulfs fixed between the school 
and its present students. Almost as soon as a girl graduates, no 
matter how far apart may have been our views, a kind of 
congeniality appears based on the common bond of having 
shared some struggles, some miseries, and at last a victory. In- 
stead of representing opposing forces, one can frankly sympathize 
with college ups and clowns, first jobs, decision to marry, young 
families, adolescent children, grandchildren — and all the rich 
variety of life. The school does ''watch with interest" the careers 
of its alumnae, but the interest quickly approaches the 
horizontality of friendship rather than the vertical relationship 
of teacher and pupil. 

Of course something is lost in this 
shift of relative positions. A school may 
be one of the few places where a grown 
person returning can experience again 
a sense of childhood, of dependence. The 
strongest of us need occasionally to draw 
back into the status of the guided, or 
directed, like those men of distinction 
in English novels who go to see their old 
nannies and are scolded for not wearing 
their rubbers. 
In such a quest for the lost childhood, it is sadly disappointing 
to find the old surroundings different, the personalities changed. 
It is a great relief for the returning one to find some fixed points 
still, especially if they represent the most cherished remem- 
brances. Sometimes a former student finds that the particular 
problem she was most troubled by has been solved. Inevitably, 
though, some things are different. 

A school in its development must change, even as does an 
individual. The great difference is that an institution does 
not have to wear out, as alas, does the human frame! Hope- 
fully, there is increase, rather than diminution. 

Abbot is developing in many ways — it is adding new tools 
for training, new approaches to the process of education. Some 
new traditions are growing up, although many old ones are 
being retained. Some new customs are appearing because the 
society our girls have been born into is different. 

For all that the Alumnae are doing in the way of encourage- 
ment, intangible and tangible, I am truly grateful —

Alumnae Council 

by Dorothy Garry Warlick '40 
Vice President of Alumnae Association 



The Alumnae Council held its annual meeting this year at Abbot 
on the 29th and 30th of November. I'm sure that I speak for all who 
attended when I say "We came, we saw, and we learned." The getting 
of information came from various sources throughout the meetings. 
First, from the students who reported on various campus activities. 
Perhaps the sweet young things lelt we were from the dark ages, but 
they certainly didn't show it! How articulate, poised and enthusiastic 
they are — a joy to hear and observe. 

Mrs. Crane extended a cordial welcome to us, and the faculty 
panel consisting of Miss Goodwin, Mile. Arosa and Miss Tinker was 
informative and stimulating. New concepts in the teaching of mathe- 
matics, language laboratories and science of the atomic age were all 
discussed. There is no doubt that the Abbot faculty is facing the 
challenge of the 60's, and planning with foresight for the 70's and 80's. 

Miss Hancock briefed us on the admissions policy at Abbot. She 
explained the many factors they consider when evaluating potential 
Abbot students. As she so aptly put it, "admissions work today is not 
only hard on the mind and feet, but also on the heart". It is gratifying 
to know that Abbot has 29 new alumnae relatives this year. 

Mary Howard Nutting, '40, President of the Alumnae Presidents' 
Council, spoke on the work and aims of this organization. I was 
privileged to attend a two-day Council meeting at Miss Porter's school 
this fall. Abbot certainly has reason to be proud of Mrs. Nutting. She 
conducted all the meetings with quiet efficiency and charm. I heard 
rer praises sung on all sides! 

College admissions were discussed by Miss Tucker, Director of 
Studies. She told us of a growing interest in the larger mid-western 
universities, as well as the "good", small, lesser-known colleges that 
?j.~e eager to attract students from schools the calibre of Abbot. 

To sit again in an Abbot class is indeed a rewarding experience. All 
3f us at Council had an opportunity to attend two classes of our 
hoice. Most of us felt we had turned back the hands of time — yet 
we saw changes. The classes are still small and informal, but new 
bourses, e.g., "Far Eastern History" and nine levels of French are being 
offered, and new methods in teaching are being used. 

Our creature comfort was more than adequately cared for at all 
imes by the hospitality of Miss Coolidge, Director of Residence, and 
er staff. 

We hope that by the warmth of our response, we gave to students 
nd faculty a sense of satisfaction in what they did for us at Council, 
nd indeed what they do on every occasion when alumnae return to 
he campus. Jane Sullivan, our Alumnae Secretary, and Barbara Healey 
Holland, our President, are to be congratulated on planning such a 
awarding meeting.

Who 's Who and Who 9 s What 

by Jane Sullivan 
Alumnae Secretary 

Over 2100 questionnaires representing 60% of Abbot's alumnae 
were returned. Some were not complete, so a picture of a typical 
alumna cannot be painted, nor can exact figures about the alumnae 
body be given. However, on the basis of the information available, here 
are some facts. 

Statistics 

SINGLE OR DOUBLE 

Before 1930 

27 % chose single blessedness 

73 % of this group were selected for marital bliss and had ai 
average of 1.2 children 

After 1930 

23 % cherished their independence 

77 % were drafted for k.p. duty and produced an average ol 
2.6 children 

TO A DEGREE 

52% received college degrees 

56 % of these received M.A. degrees or the equivalent 
Advanced Degrees Earned 
6 Ph.D's 

5 M.D.'s — one of these was earned by a graduate of the 
class of 1901 
5 LL.B's 

RELATIVELY SPEAKING 

One-third of all those who answered their questionnaires had 
Abbot connections

To Be or Not To Be 
Mount Holyoke Student 

Reprinted from The Abbot Courant, 1961 



Teacher's Recommendation of Jane Doe 

Q. — Do you think Jane Doe is mentally equipped to compete at a 
college like Mount Holyoke? 

A. — Her parents obviously think so. She would rather go to the 
University of Massachusetts where Bill is this year. She certainly does 
not want to spend lour years grinding away at the old books. However, 
it might be rather nice tor her to be able to say that she went to one 
of the "Big Seven". 

O. — Is she mature? 

A. — Everything is relative. She is more mature than her thirteen year 
old sister, but less so than the president of her class. 

Q. — Does she accept responsibility? 

A. — When she was appointed chairman of the clean-up committee, 
she was very active in recruiting additional members. 
Q. — Does she ever do any outside assignments? 

A. — It is a considerable accomplishment that she does her required 
work. 

Q. — Is she conscientious? 

A. — She always does the interesting assignments. Shakespeare bores 

her, but she has cursorily examined him on occasion: for example, the 
night before an exam. 

Q. — Does she participate in class discussions? 

A. — She always asks questions and tries to start a discussion on days 
when there is a rumor that I may give an unannounced quiz. 

Q. — Has she courage in the face of disaster? 

A. — Refuse her and see. 

Q. — What do you think are her primary interests? 

A. — Her primary interests are Jane Doe, Bill Smith, her grades, music 
(if you mean what she means by music), her future, and the girl across 
the hall, in that order. 

Q. — Do you feel that she has visibly advanced through participation 
in your class? 

A. — I refuse to answer on the grounds that I may incriminate myself. 
Q. — Does she get along well with others? 

A. — If she has to spend another minute with her roommate, she will 
probably die. 

Q. — Is she a good sport? 

A. — Do you mean, can she lose at Bridge without getting upset? No, 
she cannot. 

[9] 



Q. — Is she well groomed? 

A.— Her appearance improves daily throughout the week. On Monday, 
she looks like something out of Act 1., Scene 1. of Macbeth. On Friday, 
she looks like a human being. 

Q. — Is she emotionally stable? 

A. — Who can be emotionally stable while writing an English theme 
at one A.M. Monday morning? 

Q. — Is she emotionally unstable? 

A. — Yes, decidedly. She has an inferiority complex. 

Q. — How does she compare with other students you have had during 
the past five years? 

A. — She does not. 

Q— If she is accepted at Mount Holyoke, do you think she will con- 
tribute to the college? 

A. — Of course, her father is President of Albercrombie and Withers, 

Associates. 

Q. — Any additional comments?

Mildred Cleworth Davis writes, "The 
area in which I now live, Cocoa-Rockledge, 
is referred to as 'The Gateway to the 
Moon'. It takes me 15 or 20 minutes to 
drive to a location close to Cape Canav- 
eral from which a missile can be seen 
leaving the ground. At night it is awe- 
inspiring to watch one lift off in a bright 
rosy glow and roar away to its target. 
From such a vantage point, I saw each of 
our astronauts take off for the first trips 
into space." 



1906 

The Decmeber 7 issue of the Boston 
Globe contained an article about Elspeth 
Saunders Hardy who has been teaching 
first grade in Kingston, Mass. for fifty 
years. She was retired in 1958, but is 
permitted to go back to the first grade 
occasionally. When asked what she con- 
sidered the most important element in 
first grade she replied, "Work habits, 
getting it done, following directions." 
Her requirements for a successful teacher 
— "A teacher must be dedicated to and 



[11] 



enjoy teaching. A teacher must have the 
respect of the children. It's all right to be 
loved, but respect comes first. If you get 
both, you're an A-l teacher." 

1911 

"Greetings and best wishes for 1962. 
Thank you for all your Christmas cards.

achieved the highest percentage of any

came back on Alumnae Day, May 5. We 
will receive the award at that time. 

"Please write and send me news of you 
and your families — I always love to 
hear from you."

1926 

The following article appeared in the 
St. Louis Globe-Journal. 

"Gretchen Vanderschmidt started out as 
a secretary and is now president and 
director of a secretarial school bearing 
her name. 

"But her great contribution has been in 
helping the handicapped help themselves. 
"Let's call miss Vanderschmidt is the 
slogan for practically anybody who has 
someone they don't know what to do 
about. . 

"She has trained the blind, the physically 
handicapped (including a girl with one 
hand who learned to type quite well), 
the cerebral palsied, the mentally retarded 
and the emotionally disturbed. 

Though the handicapped require in- 
dividual training, they also get group 
training, learning to work with other 
members of the class. 

"And the students in Miss Vander- 
schmidt's classes have ranged, at the same 
time, from a Veiled Prophet Queen to a 
milkman's daughter, from a very slow 
learner to a very gifted individual, and 
all the gradations in between. 

"I make the same demands on the 
handicapped people as on normal people. 

she says. 

"I have a very firm conviction that not 
enough by volume or enough by quality 
is required of students today, and I 
believe that everybody can do better than 
they are doing today. 

"Her school — which, since 1959, has 
been incorporated as a non-profit institu- 
tion _ has two divisions: the secretarial 
and the academic tutoring, from the 
elementary through the collegiate level. 

"She considers as one of her greatest 
triumphs a voting man who came to her, 
as a mentally retarded boy who had just 



[ 121 



finished eighth grade in a private school 
— but who could talk only in an un- 
intelligible kind of grunt. 

"Though a slow learner (his I.O. when 
lie came was in the 60s) 1 lie was "bright 
enough to know nobody had expected 
anything of him' But Miss Vander- 
schmidt did. 'We are sorry, but we do 
not accept this kind of work from you,' 
she kept saying. 

"In tour years at Miss Vanderschmidt's 
school that boy learned to read at the 
twelfth grade level, learned to compute 
'faster than you or 1' and became so 
sociable, and understandable, that rela- 
tives from out of town didn't at first 
recognize him. 

"Since 1952, Miss Vanderschmidt's school 
has trained some 50 blind persons in 
typing, secretarial work and Dictaphone 
transcription. This project Avas started in 
conjunction with the Missouri State De- 
partment of Public Health and Welfare. 

"Starting from scratch, with no informa- 
tion from other sources to follow, this 
program of training had to be developed 
by the trial and error method. It is 
unique in this area. 

"Miss Vanderschmidt conceived the idea 
of using the Dictaphone to teach the 
blind to type. She put the instructions on 
the machine and found it worked wonder- 
fully well. 

" 'I'M sold on teaching typing this way,' 
she says 'because it teaches students to 
listen.' 

"One of the greatest weaknesses today 
in people, young and old, is that they 
don't listen. The blind have been trained 
to listen. They have to.' 

"She also developed methods of teaching 
the blind to spell correctly, a handicap 
second only to their blindness in its 
severity. 

"Of the 50 blind persons trained to full 
rehabilitation in Miss Vanderschmidt's 
school, many of them were trained spe- 
cifically for, and have been placed in, 
St. Louis area hospitals, as medical records 
transcribers. 

"About 15 percent of her school's en- 
rollment is made up of handicapped 
persons. Hers is also one of the few 
racially integrated business schools in this 
area. 

"Miss Vanderschmidt's work has not 
been confined to her business — though her 
business is, she says, her hobby. She was 
the first social action chairman of the 
Archdiocssan Council of Catholic Women, 
when Cardinal Ritter reorganized that 
council. 



"Miss Vanderschmidt lives al Congress 
West, an apartmenl hotel ;ii 5316 J'er- 
shing Avenue. 

"her favorite forms of relaxation are 
reading mysteries and cooking. Hut she 
has never seen a weekend when she isn't 
impatient for Monday to come."

Audrey Davis Trowbridge '54 with her

together again. Hope most of you can be 
there. 

Jody Bradley is in Paris this fall doing 
further study in Art. She has bumped 
into both Libby Horan and Bunny 
Pearce. I believe Lib has landed a job 
with the Paris Herald. 

We got a letter from Mimi Ganem 
back in October which we hope she 
won't mind if we quote in part — 'I've 
been working at MIT as secretary to the 
group in charge of the theory of the 
Apollo project. If you haven't heard 
about it, the Apollo project is aimed at 
putting the man on the moon! quite a 
trick, n'est-ce pas? I'm going to be quite 
busy since I am at this point their only 
secretary, and it ought to be interesting 
work and good experience for a year 
at least. In the meantime I'm taking some 
education courses so that I will be able 
to teach later; after hundreds of people 
asking me if I would like to teach after 
school and my giving them a flat "no" 
without even thinking, I've all of a 
sudden started to think and decided that 
it might really be my calling. Anyway a 
year in the relatively unacademic world 
should be good experience in the mean- 
time.' " 

Cecily Dickson sounds as though she 
loves England — 'I like it even more over 
here and might be tempted to stay on 
ionger than a year.' Her address is 5 Tre- 
bovir Road, London S.W. 5. 

Nancy Ruhlin Plummer sounds as if 
married life is agreeing with her. She is 
enjoying her teaching very much. Her 
address is Mrs. John Plummer, 249 Center 
Street, Old Town, Maine.

every little while, and apparently they 
are both cra/y about Stanford. 

Alma Grew is still "frenching" it and 
spent part of her vacation in Montreal 
— visiting a French Canadian!

at the University of Edinburgh for the 
year under the Tulane-Newcomb Junior 
Year Abroad Program. There are 30 
Newcomb and Tulane students in Britain 
this year and I am the only one at Edin- 
burgh. The British contingent sailed from 
New York on September 2 on the Flandre, 
French Line, and arrived in Southampton 
on the 8th. A three week bus tour of 
England was planned for us. It made a 
large circle going first west to Cornwall, 
circuitously up to York and then going to 
London by way of Cambridge. It was 
wonderful, but awfully hectic. To have 
a real change, 4 of us then took off to 
Ireland and rented a horse-drawn caravan 
for a week in which we jaunted at 3 
m.p.h. about the country just south of 
Cork. It was lovely even though it rained 
5 days out of 7. From Cork I made my way 
by train to Belfast via Dublin and took 
a boat to Glasgow where my father did 
his undergraduate work. From there I 
took the train to Edinburgh, my home 
for a year." Holly was planning to spend 
Christmas skiing in Scotland. 

Tina Savell is studying Zoology and 
Art History at Connecticut — loves it.

AT this time of year the seniors go about the campus with 
a curiously abstracted look, and an air of wearing some- 
thing like a mantle, such as a blue gown, on their shoulders. 
Occasionally they look speculatively or reproachfully at those 
who are so soon to succeed them at the "top" of the school. It 
is a time of change, with a thought that one can't stop the 
clock, as the days slip past. Granted, the dormitories are full 
of calendars with each magic number triumphantly crossed 
off, but many of us wish that there were more time before 
we separate. There is too much to do, too much need to make 

a mark on each other, the school on the 
girls and the girls on the school. We 
wish we had exchanged more influence. 
Despite such regrets we know that 
much of what has been accomplished is 
fjI*CCtiri2fS not tan gibl e nor can it be seen. Only 
" in years to come will the school seem to 
reflect some of the actions of the girls 
this year. Some of these will become prec- 
edents to be used as proof of the success 
or failure of a certain program, policy, 
or project. Conversely some of the habits formed at school 
will direct these girls and perhaps many of their friends or 
families a long time hence. 

The Class of '62 has carried through with considerable 
success many of its hopes and plans. The Alumnae body 
will be the stronger for this group of girls, I believe. 

It was a delight to see many of you on the fifth of May 
this year. As always I wish I had a chance to talk to all 
of you together and then to each one of you. Abbot un- 
doubtedly means something a little different to each. Cherish 
especially — among its various meanings — the thought of 
its upstanding and outstanding alumnae!

ABBOT DEBATES ANDOVER 

The Abbot debaters were unable to win any of the three debates 
held Friday night, April 20th, with PNYX, the Andover debating society. 
Resolved: Liberal prep schools provide a better academic and social 
education than conservative ones. The debates were held in the library, 
the Senior Parlor, and the McKeen Rooms. 

In the library, Abbot took the negative and Andover the affirmative. 
The first affirmative speaker, Mr. Stripling, used Andover as an example 
of a liberal prep school, with their system of cuts, privileges granted 
according to grade, and freedom in planning their time. With this type 
of arrangement, the student is better equipped to step into college life. 

Hilary Field, the first negative speaker, began with the premise that 
our culture is conservative, therefore, a conservative education would 
be more in accord than a liberal one. Students in the conservative 
schools are given the chance to develop good study habits. They learn 
respect for authority and neatness (taking baths, wearing shoes.) Because 
students at conservative institutions are required to take certain courses, 
they receive a "well-rounded" education. 

Mr. Meyers, the second affirmative debater, spoke of the choice a 
student at a liberal school has: to study or to loaf. A liberal school 
teaches a student how to think when writing, while a conservative only 
teaches to imitate. At the liberal school the student sees two or more 
sides to an issue and is allowed to choose for himself, instead of beino 
told what to do. 

Melinda Bateman, the second speaker for the negative, spoke of 
the social aspects. The non-conformists or the "beatniks" may think 
deeply, but do they accomplish anything, she asked. The code of society 
was created for the good of the people. She said that the students at 
liberal prep schools are apt to ignore the common courtesies of etiquette. 

[5] 



Polly Danos, the negative rebuttalist, again spoke on the discipline 
and the well-roundedness of the conservative education, and also the 
social advantages. Mr. Alpert, the affirmative rebuttalist, made clear that 
Andover was representative of a liberal and not a progressive prep 
school. He also emphasized the better college preparation students at a 
liberal school receive because of their freedoms concerning studying 
and choosing for themselves. 

Mrs. Davies declared the affirmative the winner, and commented 
that the negative often confused liberal with progressive and occasionally 
employed extreme examples. 

ART EXHIBIT 

The John-Esther Art Gallery of Abbot Academy, Andover, held a 
reception to open the retrospective exhibition of water-colours and oils 
by Mrs. Virginia Powel, art teacher at the school. Friends from Canada 
and the New England States came to see her first exhibition in this 
area. Abbot Academy bought one of the paintings for its permanent 
collection. 

Mrs. Powel graduated from the School of Art at Newcomb College 
in New Orleans and continued her studies with Xavier Gonzalez in 
New York City. She has exhibited in Cincinnati, San Antonio and 
Providence. Prior to coming to Abbot, Mrs. Powel taught art in the 
Cincinnati Art Museum and in San Antonio. 

Teaching has been an inspiration to Mrs. Powel. She feels that 
through her contact with the students she has been able to mature and 
grow in her own interpretations. Her earliest painting, a sensitive self- 
portrait, is strictly representational. Her latest works are interesting 
patterns of various elements done in clear, vibrant colors. 

PIANO RECITAL 

On Sunday, April 15th, Miss Yi-an Chang, a music teacher at 
Abbot, presented a very stirring piano recital. The program began with 
two fast moving sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti, and Beethoven's "Sonata 
op. 31, no. 22" a dark and moody piece. 

After the intermission, she continued by playing a very different 
selection, "The Willows Are New", by Chou-Wen-Chung, which the 
students and many of their parents had the pleasure of hearing for the 
first time last November. It is a sad, emotional composition, adapted 
from a 7th century poem of parting, written for the ch'in, the Chinese 
long zither. 

The four following pieces were written by composers of approxi- 
mately the same period. Debussy's "La Puerta Del Vino," "Evocation" 
by Albeniz, a graceful and expressive piece; the hammering, staccato 
"Prelude op. 32, no. 12" by Rachmaninoff; and to conclude the evening, 
a charming and beautiful work by Chopin "Scherzo, op. 19." 

The recital was pleasant and rewarding. It was too short for anyone 
who enjoys good music. 

[6] 



SATURDAY NIGHT SPEAKER — DR. ALBERT BURKE 

Dr. Albert Burke, an ex-teacher at Yale and the originator of the 
television program, "A Way of Thinking," delivered a surprising and 
eye-opening lecture on Saturday, April 14th. 

The title of his talk was "Ideals Versus Reality." He began by saying 
he was glad he was not in youth's position today. What better way to 
gain the attention of "young adults" accustomed to hearing about how 
fortunate they are? Youth is faced with problems whose nature we are 
unable to understand, primarily because our educational institutions 
do not give us a "handhold on reality." 

Dr. Burke was questioned by Newsweek magazine as to what is wrong 
with American education. He replied that nothing was wrong, it was 
just irrelevant. This was one of the relating themes of Dr. Burke's 
lecture. 

After World War II had ended, a Navajo friend of Dr. Burke's 
did not wish to return to the American way of life. His reason came 
in the form of two circles drawn with a stick on the earth. On each 
circle were smaller circles, representing the interrelated elements in life. 
The difference was that in our life, man was in the middle of the large 
circle, separate from the real and the unreal. Thus the Doctor illustrated 
the difference between America's monotheistic society and the pan- 
theistic society of other countries. 

Dr. Burke spoke of a book written by Mao Tse-tung who states 
that man will soon lose all the freedoms he has held because he does 
not understand his own ideology. When people believe strongly in 
their ideals, those people and their beliefs will survive. Mao Tse-tung 
says that youth does not believe in anything and can be convinced to 
believe in anything. 

The younger generations cannot respect or become concerned if 
the community is not concerned. It is the community which decides 
what is important, what is relevant. 

Dr. Burke delivered the most stirring and relevant speech we have 
heard this year. He has certainly outlined a situation close to us. 



The Courant received a medalist award in the private school 
literary magazine division at the Columbia Scholastic Press Asso- 
ciation Convention in New York. 

Cynosure received a third place award in the private school 
newspaper division for its first complete year of publication at 
the Columbia Convention.

NEWS from the CLUBS 

On Wednesday, April 11, the BOSTON club met at the Boston 
Yacht Club in Marblehead. Dessert was served at 1:30. There were four 
alumnae speakers: Eugenia Parker '16 — Licensed Maine Guide, Executive 
Secretary for Maine Guide Training Program, and former Camp Di- 
rector; Muriel Baker Wood '15 — Racing skipper, Boston Community 
Boating 'Sailing's a Cinch'; Gertrude Goss '17 — former Smith faculty,

entertained the group at her home in New Canaan on May 16. Mrs. 
Crane and Jane Sullivan attended the meeting. 

With Tongue in Cheek 

FAREWELL WINTER 

by Anita Miller, 1963 

How sad it is that winter is over! Lovely vistas of unblemished 
white snow are replaced by scrubby patches of ugly green grass. 

No longer will we see poetically bare branches silhouetted 
against clear blue winter skies; the purity of these branches is 
being interrupted by jagged buds which are poking up their 
fiendish faces. Soon these buds, bad enough in themselves, will 
become green (horrible color!) leaves to further mar the simple 
trees. 

The hard ground which provided a firm, tidy foothold, has 
melted into a dirty, sloshy state of muddiness. We are now be- 
sieged by flocks of noisy birds which awaken us at six every morning 
(their own rising time, I presume). We must shed cozy and dis- 
guising bulky winter clothes and don spring garments which 
reveal every ounce of that extra fifteen pounds. 

Blotchy patches of color are appearing in the form of crocuses; 
merely more eyesores. There is no more ice for skaters, no more 
snow for the skiers, no more possibility of blizzards which will 
stop school activities, no more exciting indoor sports at Abbot. 
And so, we bid a sorrowful farewell to Winter and smile weakly 
at Spring. Reprinted from Cynosure

Class News 



1887 

Angie Dunton Purrington writes, 
" 'And not by Eastern Windows only 

When daylight comes, comes in the 
light; 
In front the sun climbs slow, how slowly, 

But westward, look, the land is bright'. 

A happy comparison the last glowing 
rays of a beautiful sunset and the close 
of a life full of years and worthy deeds — 
Also it is inspiring to quote with Robert 
Browning his familiar lines 'Come grow 
old along with me' and possibly accept 
the myth, 'the best of life is yet to be'. 
It surely can be true and far be it from 
me to disillusion any who have that 
grand experience. But as for me, now in 
my 97th year I repeat what I said on my 
95th birthday, to live into the nineties is 
an awesome, a frightening thing, a far 
from desirable thing to do since we must 
count lives by deeds rather than by years. 

Much attention is given to old age. The 
government retires people too early, often 
making them dependent on a bare living 
and taking from them all initiative and 
pride in doing for themselves. The dis- 
covery of new drugs, new processes of 
food and ways of living have done a lot 
to lengthen the average span of life. I 
read that in the course of 10 years it will 
not be unusual for men and women to 
live to the age of 150 years — but to what 
purpose? The world is already overcrowd- 
ed and the old are becoming too much 
of a care. Better for it would seem to 
devise ways of support for the aged com- 
mensurate with their strength and ability. 
To live contentedly one must have em- 
ployment, self respect and above all to feel 
needed. 

Circumstances alter cases and what is 
true for one cannot be said for all. Also 
this is not the place for a homily on the 
government versus old age but it is a 
subject very near my heart and I would 
like to see provision made for all old 
people to be busy and happy. As for my 
75th reunion there are three of us in the 
nineties but not one able to attend — 
Jeanie Jillson lives in a retired Mis- 
sionary home in California but is nearly 
blind, Harriet Thiving in the Amasa a 
Stone Home in Cleveland is ill at this 
time, and I who am confined to a wheel 
chair. Until the last few years we kept a 
yearly Round Robin letter. 



If I may be allowed to quote once 
more, I would like to close with the fun 
provoking words of our beloved O. W. 
Holmes who never failed to bring the 
spirit of mirth into every occasion even 
at his own expense. 

'And if I should live to be the last leaf 
on the tree 
In the Spring. 

Let them smile, as I do now 
At the old forsaken bough 
where I cling.' " 

Jeanie L. Jillson writes, 

"75 years! How long it seems since Miss 
McKeen gave us our diplomas and sent 
us out into the world! But always the 
friends of those days have been with us 
in thought and in gratitude and inspira- 
tion. 

"For me the experiences of life have 
been varied. Fifteen years of teaching in 
the home land, thirty-five years in Turkey 
and the Near East. 

"The years of service in Mission Schools 
have given much joy and satisfaction. 
There have been tragic times, with sad 
experiences, but always friends to help in 
the work of life. A year of service with 
the Red Cross in Jerusalem during the 
reconstruction after World War I, brought 
me in contact with much need and sorrow, 
but the opportunities to serve, were many 
and varied. 

"Since coming home at the end of my 
missionary service, I have spent three 
years with friends and relatives, and 
twenty-two years in the Missionary House 
in Claremont, California. From there I 
send love to all Abbot girls and best 
wishes that its future may be as bright 
as the days that have passed". 

1892 

The following letters were received for 
the "Paper Reunion": 

Frances Brown Crane 

"I still have many fond memories of the 
time I spent at school there, and many 
times have thought I would like to re- 
turn and re-visit the school; but this 
has not been possible. 

"Shortly after leaving Abbot, I entered 
school at Exeter, Massachusetts, and took 
the training course for kindergarten 
teacher. After completing my training 
there, I did teach a kindergarten class in 
a private school at Exeter, Massachusetts; 



16 J 



in fact, I operated the school myself. I 
did this for two years and then taught in 
the regular public school (lass. I stayed 
in the public school system for about six 
years, at which time 1 left teaching to be 
married to Dr. Carl C. Crane. After I 
married Dr. Crane, we went to live in 
Norwood, Massachusetts, where we lived 
for about five years. After this, Dr. Crane, 
an orthopedic surgeon, had an offer to 
come to California to join a doctor who 
was already in practice in San Francisco. 
It was in 1909 that we arrived in Cali- 
fornia, in San Francisco. Dr. Crane was 
in practice with this doctor for a period 
of five years, after which time he opened 
his own office. 

"During this time we lived in San 
Francisco and continued to live there 
until ahout 1923, at which time we moved 
down the Peninsula to the little town of 
Woodside, located about thirty miles 
south of San Francisco. We lived there 
for one year and then purchased a piece 
of property in the town of Los Altos, a 
little country town, about thirty-five 
miles south of San Francisco. Dr. Crane 
continued to practice in San Francisco, 
commuting the distance between there 
and Los Altos. We built a beautiful 
home in Los Altos in a very lovely setting 
and resided there for a period of twenty- 
five years, after which we moved back to 
San Francisco to my present address. 

"Being the wife of a doctor has pro- 
vided me with a very full life, and we 
had a real partnership in his practice. 
Of course, my life hasn't always gone 
along smoothly. Dr. Crane had several 
very serious illnesses but happily I was 
able to nurse him through them when 
sometimes the doctors had given me no 
hope at all. 

"Dr. Crane passed away in 1956, and I 
have continued to reside in our home here 
by myself. I live in a very lovely apart- 
ment on Russian Hill in San Francisco, 
and the view from my window includes 
the Golden Gate and the San Francisco 
Bay bridges, as well as a beautiful sweep- 
ing view of the entire Bay and most of 
San Francisco. Although many times I have 
desired to see the East Coast again, I 
am afraid my heart is definitely in Cali- 
fornia at this time and will continue to 
be. It is a lovely place to live in and I 
have enjoyed every minute of it. 

"During our period of residence in the 
country, I was very active in community 



affairs, being President of the Women's 
Club there for a period of three years. 
and taking part in all local community 
church activities and many charitable 
services. During World War II, while I 
was President of the Women's Club we 
organized an emergency hospital facility 
for the town of Los Altos to take care 
of any eventuality that might occur." 

Georgia Emerson Puffer: "I am beauti- 
fully situated in a lovely house. I had 
three children, seven grand children, and 
now have sixteen 'greats'. Most gratify- 
ing. 

"My Mother was also an Abbot girl 
and I was named for one of her class- 
mates, Georgia Gleason. 

"Miss McKeen was the principal when 
my Mother attended as she was when I 
came to Abbot. I still practice my Chopin 
with memories of Professor Downes, a 
good teacher who inspired me with a 
love for good music." 

Josephine Rounsevel Coffin writes that 
twelve members of her family have attend- 
ed Abbot and Phillips, so her memories of 
Abbot have been varied, interesting and 
happy. She sends warm greetings to her 
classmates, and to Abbot wishes for long 
years ahead in continuing good works. 

Emily Slants Carter: "I will be ninety- 
two years old in June, and have 17 
great-grandchildren which are a joy to 
me. I am thankful that I have my eye- 
sight, and I enjoy reading and visits from 
my children, grand-children and great- 
grandchildren. It gives me pleasure to 
look back on my Abbot days." 



1897 

Rose Churchill writes, "All I can say is I 
am still enjoying life, and pretty active 
considering the dates behind. Until re- 
cently I have been doing a good deal of 
water-color painting. Two years ago I 
had a long visit in Hawaii and last 
summer a trip to Europe — my sixteenth. 
The latter one was to visit my niece, 
Lucy Talcott daughter of May Churchill 
Talcott, 1895. She is a distinguished archae- 
ologist. On June 3, I shall attend the 
Smith graduation of my niece, Shirley 
Slater, daughter of Theodora Talcott 
Slater '27. It will be a double celebration 
for me on my 84th birthday."

Harriet Chase Newell, 1902 and Alice 
Morse Ray, 1897 with Edith Ireland 
Wood, 1926, President of the Alum- 
nae Association 

Martha Emerson will be 84 next Au- 
gust. She has had many busy years as a 
Library worker in various capacities and 
in various places until she retired in 
1946. Since her retirement she has lived 
in Williamstown, Mass., but will soon 
move to Ithaca, N. Y. to live with her 
sister, Emily Emerson Day, 1901. 

Alice Morse Ray has a daughter and 
three granddaughters. 

Edith Morton Yoder writes, "After my 
year at Abbot, I attended the Chicago 
Kindergarten School, and graduated in 
1900. It is now the International College 
of Education. In 1903, I was married to 
Luther K. Yoder, and we lived in Pitts- 
burgh until 1925 when we moved to 
Ayer, Mass. We were always busy with 
Boy Scouts, young people's activities, 
Woman's Club and church work. We 
traveled all over the United States. Our 
only child, a son, lives in Litchfield, Conn. 
My husband passed away just one year 
ago." 

Joy Webster Bowerman had an acci- 
dent last September, and has been in the 
hospital in Washington most of the time 
since then. 

1902 

Honora Spalding spends her winters in 
New York and her summers in southern 
New Hampshire in an old family home — 
she is the fourth generation to spend 
time there. 



Helen White Lawton writes, "I only 
wish I could come to Alumnae Day in 
May, but I am not quite young enough 
to travel from Brooklyn alone". She sends 
her best wishes to all. 

1907 
Reunion Report 

As we tried to unite for our fifty-fifth 
reunion, we realized that not many of us 
are able to "trip it, as you go, on the 
light fantastic toe!". Trains and express- 
ways, being what they are, we become a 
bit .wary. 

Jack Hukill Leeds, co-chairman, has 
been recently hospitalized and unable to 
make the trip from Cleveland. We are 
glad to hear from her that she is im- 
proving. Mabel Allen Buxton's brother 
drove her directly from her home in 
Longmeadow to my house on Friday. On 
Saturday we drove to Marjory Bond 
Crowley's home in Reading, and Marjory 
drove us to Abbot. There we were joined 
by Laura Howell who still lives in Tren- 
ton, New Jersey, and has retired after 
many years of social service work in that 
state. Evaline Korn Cookman's '06 hus- 
band drove her and Laura to Andover. 

Ann Richards Folsom now lives in 
Old Lyme, Connecticut to be near one 
of her married daughters in Saybrook. 
Arthritis and a recent heart ailment 
made travel unwise, but Anna sent in- 
teresting news and pictures. Lee Parsons 
Cooper's husband is recovering from an 
illness so it was unwise for Lee to leave. 
She and "Jack" see each other quite 
often. 

Louise Richards Rollins wrote us a nice 
letter from her home in Newport, N. H. 
We were sorry not to have her with us. 

The Alumnae business meeting at Ab- 
bot Hall brought us up-to-date on school 
affairs. Mrs. Crane welcomed the Alum- 
nae and we were amazed at the size of 
the Senior Class who marched in and 
sang to us. 

After a delicious luncheon in the big 
dining room where we were joined by 
Constance Parker Chipman, '06, we strol- 
led through the grounds and made the 
rounds of the Bazaar which extended 
iround the "Circle". As it began to 
sprinkle, we left to be home before dark. 
And so it went with our "Fifty-fifth" 
and we agreed that the reunion will be 
a rewarding memory.

1917 

Rein ion Report 

Greetings to the girls of 1917 — to 
those who came back for our 45th re- 
union, it was wonderful to see you. To 
those who didn't, do plan to come in 
1967. Seven girls came for Alumnae Day 
and we all looked the same as the last 
time we met!, and of course we didn't 
feel any older. We are proud of our 
career women and of the others, too — 
i.e. Grandmothers. 

Cornelia Sargent Battershill came and 
with Gert, Bernice, Fran, Edith, and Mar- 
jorie, thingg were humming. 

Dorothy Newton is an outstanding 
teacher of French at the West Hartford 
High School. 

Edith Marsden is head of the history 
department at Lawrence High School 
and is an ardent skier. 

Gertrude Goss has retired from Smith 
College but is working hard. She teaches 
swimming and has written books on swim- 
ming. 



Frances Gere has retired and hopes to 
find time to finish a book started sometime 
ago. 

Frances Cartland is a busy teacher and 
we hope to see her in '67, if not before. 

Julia Littlefield teaches at the Laurence 
School in Hewlitt, L.I. We were sorry 
to learn that she was in the hospital — 
hope she is well now. 

Marjorie Smithwick Parsons lives in 
Marblehead and came back for the first 
time. It was good to see her. 

Rachel Olmstead Storrs spends winters 
in Florida and summers in Ware. 

Mary Wuicliet De Armon, Balfie, Toney 
Stone, Connie Newcomb, Betty Graves 
sent such nice letters. 

Mary has five grandchildren and hopes 
to return for our 50th. Balfie has just 
returned from a visit with her son and 
his family in Hawaii — Tom, Jr. a Capt. 
and jet flyer — daughter, Nancy, works 
i» hospital at Bryn Mawr. Betty writes: 

"We are blessed with four sons — we 
had no prospects for Abbot — of whom 
we are very proud. Charles is Associate 
Professor of French at Skidmore College 
Bill, Jr. is an M.D. in East Longmeadow, 
Mass., Laurence is a Methodist minister 
in Rockville, Conn., and David is a 
Methodist minister in Westerly, R. I. 
We have six grandsons, as you will see by 
the enclosed picture. Since this was taken 
one granddaughter has been added — 
total seven. 

"Through the years my husband and I 
have been active in our local church 
program and in that of the New England 
Southern conference. Since January I have 
been president of the Norwich Council 
of United Church Women. 

"Our future plans include the building 
of a small house. (We have eighteen 
rooms in the old farmhouse — too big!) 
at the sea-shore about ten miles from here, 
and travelling. We were in Florida for 
five weeks this winter. 

"How I wish I could be with you on 
May 5th and learn what all of you are 
doing. Have a wonderful day." 

Antoinette Stone Mawhinney sent in- 
teresting pictures of her family. 

Alice Littlefield Legal lives in West 
Baldwin, Maine, now. She has 2 sons and 
5 grandchildren. 

Carita Higeloto Moore is very busy and 
lives in Wellesley. She has 3 sons and 3 
grandchildren. 



[24] 



Harriet Murdock Andcrsson wrote from 
Honolulu. She lives in Austin, Texas 
where her husband is professor of ro- 
mance languages at the University of 
lex as. Her son is assistant professor 
in the German Department. Her daughter, 
Abbot T>3, is married and living in 
Seattle. She has 2 children. 

Bern ice Boutwell Parsons is busy with 
arts and crafts — she hasn't changed at 
all. She has 9 grandchildren. 

It was nice to hear from Sophia Chry- 
sakis after all these years. I quote from 
her letter, "I wish I could join you on 
Alumnae Day. I would have loved meeting 
again all my old friends and classmates of 
whom I cherish fond memories. 

"Alas! the distance is considerable and 
(he trip quite expensive so to make it 
worthwhile, I should stay at least three 
weeks. At present I cannot afford to be 
away for long. Unlike you, I am not 
married and I live together with my 
senior sister who is in her early eighties, 
exceptionally frail, in a nice recently 
built cottage with a fairly large garden. 
We are grateful to God that we have 
survived the hardships of 'occupation* 
which meant almost four years, from 
April 1941 to November 1944 of living 
in great deprivation under duress. 

"My dream is to visit the States once 
again before long and then I shall join 
you in our Alumnae Day celebrations. 

"Please convey my warmest personal re- 
gards to all our classmates and my thanks 
to Frances Gere who took the trouble of 
writing also to me". 

Miriam Bacon Chellis and husband 
have just returned from California. They 
went to welcome a new granddaughter 
who was born to daughter, Carolyn and 
her husband who is a Captain in the 
U. S. Marine Corps. 

Mary Martin '19 joined us for lunch 
as did Miss Alice Sweeney, 1914. 

To those of you who answered — thanks 
a million — to those who didn't please 
do the next time. It makes all the writing 
worthwhile. 

See you in 1967. 

Miriam Bacon Chellis 
Reunion Chairman 



1919 

Kay Beck Dow and her husband flew 
to South America in March. They flew 
down the west coast and up the east coast. 



They took the six-day Chilean lake trip, 
a combination steamer and motor coach 
trip. 

Kay sent the following news items: 
Marea Blackford Fowler and Kay were 
guests of Harriette Harrison at a bon 
voyage party on board the Bergcnsfjord 
in New York in January. Harriette took 
an eighty-day cruise around the world. 

Dorothy Korst Blodgett and her two 
sons recently sold the mills in Janesville, 
Wis. which had been in the Blodgett 
family for over one hundred years. Dot 
also has a daughter. All three of her 
children are married, and she has nine 
grandchildren. 

Thelma Mazey Gager returned home 
May 2 from an air tour of the world 
with her husband. They went via the 
South Pacific from Queensland, Australia 
to Singapore, Ceylon, Istanbul, and Copen- 
hagen. 

The class will be sorry to learn that 
Marian Nichols Fiore's husband, Michele, 
died in January. He was the author of the 
book, "Welfare of Nations", and was a 
designer at the Newport News Shipbuild- 
ing and Dry Dock Co. 

Carolyn Richardson Korst and her hus- 
band had a wonderful trip to the Orient 
last spring to attend the Rotary conven- 
tion. 

Margaret Taylor Stain ton also had a 
wonderful trip to Europe with her hus- 
band. 

"Girls — write me." Kay 

Mrs. Kenneth C. Dow 
Center Tuftonboro, N. H. 



1920 

Margaret Ackroyd Hunt's daughter be- 
came engaged in April to Carl G. Ras- 
mussen of Hillside, N. J. He is a second- 
year student at Albany Medical College, 
and they plan to be married this summer. 



1922 
Reunion Report 
"And what are all these years to me! 
I'm just as young as I can be. 
Reunion will be lots of fun, 
I'll see what the ravages of time has 

done 
To every one — but me!" 



[25] 



This little poem is the gift of Jane 
Baldwin who is just the same only more 
so — warm, humorous and full of en- 
thusiasm. Jane and Carol Iredell are the 
proud owners of a house on the river in 
Essex, Conn. Except for the weeks Carol 
is in Florida Jane joins her for the week- 
ends to watch the birds, the bunnies and 
just plain relax! Last October they had a 
marvelous trip through Austria and hope 
to "make the Parthenon" next fall. 

Gwen Bloomfield Tillson says life re- 
mains the same but they are looking for- 
ward to her husband's retirement in 
October. Bob, the older son is in In- 
vestments, has three sons and a daughter. 
Dick is with an Investment Survey Co. 
in N. Y., Debbie, who graduated from 
Abbot a few years ago, will receive her 
B.S. from Hood College and her R.N. 
from Mass. General Hospital in June. 

Sally Bodwell Houghton was at Field- 
stones when we arrived, having reached 
Andover from Fort Myers, Fla. where they 
spend the winter. Sally retired from the 
restaurant business in '60. We found 
everything delicious as usual but it was a 
treat to have her able to sit with us 
and really visit. After spending a few days 
with her mother they will go on to their 
home in Weld, Me. where they are doing 
all the things they never had time for 
before. 

Katherine Damon Kletzien wrote us 
that her daughter Edie Bass is living in 
Bedford, Mass. while her husband finishes 
his Air Force stint. Gwen took time to 
welcome her, a friendly act that Kay 
appreciated. Phyllis and her husband Ted 
Campbell live in Chicago where he 
teaches at McCormack Theological School. 
Each of the daughters has a child and 
Edie expects another in Oct. Damon, 24, 
graduated from Penn State University and 
is working in the Peace Corps Office in 
Washington, D.C. while taking an evening 
course in African Politics; in August he 
may be going to Africa to serve two years 
with the Am. Friends VISA program. 
Ralph, Kay's youngest, began college at 
Wooster, in Ohio, last fall. Kay is glad 
to have plenty of Community and church 
interests to keep her busy. Seymour car- 
ries on as chemist at the Cooper Hospital 
in Camden, N. J. — a field of increasing 
importance as doctors depend on medical 
technicians more and more to aid them 
in their diagnosis. Judging by the snap- 
shot Kay sent, her family are attractive 
people but the next time have them all 
face the camera! 



Ruth Dewey York and her son still 
live in Marblehead where he is working 
and she teaches first grade. She is very 
proud of her nephew who has become the 
private secretary of Senator Rusk. 

It was wonderful to receive such a good 
letter from Kay Gage, Sister Mary Anselm, 
of St. Mary's Convent, an Anglican Com- 
munity in Peekskill, N. Y. She has taught 
English and Latin there and in Tennessee, 
in the High Schools. They have a hospital 
for children recovering from long-range 
ailments, cardiacs and post polio cases. 
Kay's present job is assisting with a lot of 
correspondence and in the editing of their 
bi-monthly magazine. She teaches the 
novitiate twice a week and looks after 
a library for her associates. Then there 
are big church groups to be entertained, 
all in the framework of a modified 
Benedictine Rule with its hours of praise 
and intercession. Kay sends her love to all. 

Helen Goodale Farley and her husband 
will be coming east from Concord, Calif, 
in July, when Joe will be in Vermont on 
business and she will be visiting her sister. 
He retires in Oct. and then they plan 
to make a more leisurely tour in this 
direction. Helen thought we would all 
need name tags but so far no one has 
changed very much. 

Barb Goss is still teaching at the 
Winsor School in Boston and is looking 
forward to retiring before long. She was 
sorry not to see more of the class re- 
turning — we all were — Barb doesn't 
think we look old enough to be having 
a fortieth reunion! Certainly she doesn't. 

Ruth Hill has been Mrs. E. Schuyler 
English since 1959. Her husband is a 
writer and they live in Merion, Penna. 
in the winter and at Skytop, Penna. 
summers — Both Ruth's daughters are 
married and she has "two and a half" 
grandchildren! 

To keep in order alphabetically I'll 
take my place here — During the past 
five years Bill and I have added five 
grandchildren to our list to bring our 
grand total to twelve and a half! 1 cared 
for Peter's three girls for two years and 
while I found it is not as easy at 58-60 
as when you are young, I thoroughly 
enjoyed "mothering" once more and have 
missed them since their Dad re-married 
last spring. To us, all twelve are hand 
some, healthy and delightful! Bill, after 
suffering for years and being on crutches 
since Jan. '61, had a steel hip joint in- 
serted last Sept. and will soon give up 



[26 1 



the cane he has heen using since Feb. 
He is without pain which seems a miracle 
to us. As Interior Designer and Color 
Consultant for several architects in this 
area we drive over the east from Presque 
Isle, Me. to Binghamton, N. Y. When 
I am through chauffering for him I hope 
to have more time for ceramics, painting 
and sewing. For the past five years I have 
done a lot of Woman's Club work as Presi- 
dent, chairman of various committees and 
on the state magazine staff. I've enjoyed 
hearing from you all and hope you will 
continue to send in news from time to 
time. Please plan noiv to return in '67! 

Bubbles Hutchinson Bluntschli was 
too involved in house alterations both in 
Hackensack and at their summer home in 
Bay Head, to come back with Jane, Al 
and Carol as usual and we missed her. 
Joan Brooks, her older daughter, and 
family (three children) are moving to 
Tulsa in July. Margot Denkerd with her 
husband and two boys live in Chittenango, 
N. Y. Bubbles son, Bob is still with her. 
She looked C. P. Damon Mason up last 
summer at the shore and says she plans 
to do it this year. 

Helen Knight Wilkinson is living in a 
charming old house in N. Andover. Linda, 
17, is attending Rogers Hall in Lowell 
and Wendy, 20, is graduating from 
Katharine Gibbs. Helen's son is married, 
has a son and daughter, is working in 
Boston and still going on for his doctorate 
at MIT. Helen has been State Chairman 
of the Mass. Federation of Garden Clubs 
as Junior Gardener Chrmn., Pres. of the 
Andover Garden Club, and Chrmn. of the 
Andover Junior Garden Club. We all 
met at her house for cocktails at four- 
thirty and enjoyed seeing the clever 
changes she made in her house. They are 
a talented family, for besides Helen's 
water colors there are lovely ones by the 
girls and her husband. She teaches classes 
in cone and flower arrangements, too. 

We have three classmates in Asheville, 
N. C. and Slip MacPherran Worcester is 
one; graduations seem to have been her 
nemesis as regards reunion. Betsy is grad- 
uating from a local school this month 
(her two years at Abbot were terminated 
by illness) and Cynthia from Mt. Holyoke 
on June 3rd. We will look for you to 
come up in '67 — unless you arrive at 
weddings for the girls about then! 

Dottie Moxley Pitman was sorry she 
would not be returning from Florida 
until after reunion. We are, too. 



Earlier commitments kept Florence Phil- 
lips Cooke from joining us. Her sons, 
Jim and Phil, live in Swampscott and 
both work for their Dad. There are five 
grandchildren. Daughter Nancy is a secre- 
tary in San Francisco but will be returning 
east soon. 

On the fourth I was glad to hear from 
Elizabeth Ohnemus Hicks and knew her 
voice at once. Although they moved to 
Natick a couple of years ago she is still 
active in the Episcopal Church Altar 
Guild in Newton. In the summers their 
home is on the Cape at E. Brewster. 
She sent good wishes to all and is one 
of several who wished reunion came at a 
less busy season. 

Peg Potter Kensinger was her usual 
gay and lovely self, full of interest in 
every one and everything. A call came 
from her one night and before we'd 
really exchanged greetings, a warm bari- 
tone broke in with the first few bars of 
"Out of the Ivory Palaces" (remember 
Northfield?)! It was Sidney, giving Peg a 
little competition. They haven't been 
home from Florida very long and Peg 
looks wonderful. She keeps very busy with 
a local blood recruitment program and 
church work. 

Marian Rugg Caywood writes that she 
and Harley just naturally head toward 
the Pacific when they get away, for their 
daughter Abby, with her doctor husband 
and three children, live in La Jolla, 
Calif. She thinks she will have to wait for 
our 50th. to return — we will hope not! 

Barb Sands Sherman came all the way 
from Bay Village, Ohio and certainly 
the intervening 35 years have passed over 
her lightly! She and Frank have three 
sons and six grandchildren. Peg, Barb 
Goss and I stopped in on our way to 
Helen's to meet one of the boys, Jim 
and his most attractive wife, their son 
and daughter (who is in Helen's Jr. 
Garden Club). Barb is staying with them 
for a few days. These were the only class 
grandchildren we were able to see — don't 
wonder Barb is so proud of them. 

Marian Saunders Cheesborough was the 
first of our class to move to Asheville 
and she has been very active, not only 
in the local Garden Club, but chairman 
of her church Altar Guild as well. She 
speaks of their "grandchildren being a 
constant joy" but does not say how many. 
Are all the boys married, Sandy? Bring 



[27] 



the other girls from Asheville, round up 
those in the N. Y. area and we'll have a 
reunion call go out any old time! 

Al Van Schmus Smith is another husy 
gal who always comes hack for reunion. 
She does a lot of volunteer work in the 
Visiting Nurse Assoc, Red Cross, much 
traveling, gardening and what she calls 
"going antiquing". Of their three daugh- 
ters — Ellen is working for IBM in 
N. Y. and Meggy is a junior at Boston 
University. Ann is married and enahled 
Al to join our "picture sessions" for 
fond grandmothers at reunion with snap- 
shots of an adorahle black-haired, six 
week old granddaughter! 

Janet Warren Winslow sent a fine 
newsy letter this year, reporting the com- 
muting she and Red have done hetween 
Needham and Boothhay Harbor, Me. 
Their daughter, Susan, lives in Cape 
Elizabeth with her husband and two 
children. Ann, the older daughter still 
lives in Reading, Mass. She has two boys 
and "a darling little doll, Elaine". If any 
of you are around Southport this sum- 
mer, look Janet up and there might be a 
boat ride for you in a wonderfully 
scenic part of the Maine coastal waters! 

It is sad to have to tell you that Kay 
Weeks Plaisted is the second of our class 
to die; she passed away in April. She 
had welcomed us often when they lived 
near the school. Our sincere sympathy 
goes to her husband and children. 

Suzie Welborn Osborn lives near her 
son David, in Jacksonville, Fla. We know 
Ricky and Elaine are beautiful children 
for their doting grandmother sent several 
snapshots of them with her letter. Last 
fall Suzie had a marvelous trip through 
Europe; she hopes you will make a point 
of stopping if you are going through her 
area. 

I wish you all could see the clipping 
Anne Whinery enclosed with her letter 
for it shows her behind a huge cake 
decorated with twenty-five candy babies 
on the occasion of her twenty-fifth year 
with the Department of Welfare and 
Institutions in Virginia. She has been 
supervisor of the department since its 
inception in 1942. Anne has played a 
part in more than 28,354 adoptions and 
refers to them as her "children"! Al- 
though she is retiring as of July 15th, 
Anne is making a South American tour 
this summer observing social work activ- 
ities and procedures and ending with the 



International Conference in Rio late in 
August. Anne sent all the D.O.G.'s her 
love and said to sing all the old songs 
for her; well, we didn't find time and I 
am sure we have forgotten the words! 

Alex Wilkins Talmadge is our third 
member in Asheville and all her news 
was of her children. Her daughter is 
assistant to the Dean at Agnes Scott 
College in Atlanta but she is going to 
Michigan State University next fall to 
get her Master's Degree. Her twenty-four 
year old son Tommy is with the Norfolk 
Shipbuilding Co. in Virginia. 

The card from Dottie Williams David- 
son told of her daughter Mary Faith, a 
sophomore at Pine Manor who moved 
home to be with her after Allen's sud- 
den death in November, and how fortu- 
nate Dottie felt to have her near at this 
time. In the fall she will transfer to 
Skidmore. Her married daughter lives in 
Chappaqua, N. Y., but is home often. 
The son, his wife and little boy live in 
Needham; he is in the family business at 
Longs. We missed you, Dottie, but sym- 
pathize with your feelings that this is one 
reunion you could miss. Will expect to 
see you next time round! 

Millicent Bartlett Holmberg felt she 
could not leave her antique shop in 
Lomita, Calif., the Glass Bottle. It keeps 
her tied down. The shop specializes in 
bottles and she does a big mail-order 
job as well. She wants to say "hello" 
to you all. 

One of our most loyal members is 
Jimmy Burr Sanders. She moved from 
Marblehead to Wellesley Hills in 1960. 
Her daughter, Carol, lives in Omaha, Neb. 
at Offutt Air Force Base, headquarters 
for SAC. Her husband is a Major — they 
have a small son. The other daughter. 
Barbara Dadmun has three children and 
lives- in Framingham. Barbara was grad- 
uating from Abbot on the occasion of 
our 20th. reunion so on May 5th. she 
was back for her 20th. We may not see 
much change in each other but when we 
see our daughters grown women, the 
years cannot be denied! Jimmy is always 
with us at reunions. 

Dottie Flagg Smith enjoys her five 
children and I'll bet it is mutual! She 
tries to lose her extra pounds in the 
summer with gardening, golf and swim- 
ming and all thru the year is busy with 
many crafts, and water colors. 



[28 



Louise Mount Wilson was unable to 
return because she is visiting her daugh- 
ter and two grandchildren. Two years 
ago they were visiting them in Greece 
but this year they travel west to Utah. 
Louise's son, Tony, just graduated from 
OCS and is now on a Survey Ship in 
the Pacific. She loves living in her de- 
lightful old stone house with her husband, 
a deaf dog aged 12 years and a blind 
one, aged 10! 

Vera liarnelt Cothran sent the first 
news of her activities in years and years! 
She handles child welfare cases and finds 
it a very busy time just now. She has 
seven grandchildren. 

Alice Tower Kirkby has attended all 
our reunions to date but her husband is 
just out of the hospital after surgery 
and of course wished to stay with him. 
Alice is on her 6th year with the Mont- 
clair Times, reporting the concerts as 
well as doing office work. Alice hasn't 
missed many reunions so we will be 
hoping to see you soon. We missed the 
girls who generally attend and hope you 
will make an extra effort next year to 
be with us! 

So now we have come to the end of, the 
cards and messages that have been re- 
turned. We hope to see all of you in '67! 
There have been some fine changes at 
the school in these recent years and we 
are proud of them, but the finest thing 
of all — the close bond uniting all of 
1922 — remains as strong as ever. The 
eleven who got back picked up their 
friendships exactly where we left them 
forty years ago. Get together when and 
where you can — and God bless you all! 

Affectionately,

Reunion Report 

Thirty-five years after graduation, seven 
'27ers met and RECOGNIZED each other 
... so the reunion was a success! Look 
at the picture and see if you can do as 
well. We held our class meeting after 
the luncheon, and elected Sydna, Reunion 
Chairman for the 40th, Peg Nay Gram- 
kow, Fund Secretary for five years, and 
voted a .$10 gift to the Fund. We read 
all the letters, pored over pictures and 
questionnaires, and talked about every- 
one who wasn't there. Next time you'd 
better come. 

We enjoyed Syd's wonderful letter from 
Italy where she was starting her three 
months in Europe. She had seen Sally 
Tate who has lived in Rome for four 
years. At home Syd lives on Martha's 
Vineyard most of the year. She sings in 
the choir, occasionally plays the church 
organ, works in all aspects of the Little 
Theatre, has had two seasons with the 
"pro" summer theatre at Edgartown, and 
in the winter she paints. She spoke and 
exhibited some of her marvelous Mexican 
paintings at a Boston Abbot Club meet- 
ing. Her job from August to December 



29] 



is getting out the family publication, 
"Eldridge Tide Book" which sells 10,000 
copies to yachtsmen and mariners. She 
concludes, "I hope you are having a happy 
day, and next time I hope I'll be there 
too." 

Lo Kimball is still painting pictures 
with words as well as her brush. She 
sent this delightful bit of nostalgia: 

"Incidents that come to mind about 
Abbot are strangely random: Stalling 
in line, to nod good morning to Miss 
Bailey. My amused surprise at my 
first initiation to the Abbot method of 
eating bananas. Miss Friskin's despair over 
my lack of talent at the keyboard. Having 
had Nan for a roommate was one of the 
major pleasures. Those prescribed walks 
were not. Miss Chickering's delightful ab- 
sent-mindedness. A pickle tiddly -winked 
by yours truly into Miss Bancroft's tea- 
cup. The fun at Marblehead and In- 
tervale. Sounds: The gong, those bells, 
gleeful voices over mail, hymns, readings 
by Miss Hammond, lectures, practicing 
from the music rooms, Sydna's wonderful 
songs, Hen Nash's playing and also Miss 
Friskin's, that doleful tree song, ours, "Oh 
Abbot Beautiful", clack of hockey sticks, 
slap of basketballs, plunk of tennis balls. 
Quite a medley. No doubt our Year 
Book would stir up many more memories, 
but why become so acutely aware of how 
we have changed!" 

But actually, having read and digested 
the questionnaires, I don't think we have 
changed. We're all pretty much in 
character.

She has an interesting job in a specialty 
shop. Her son graduates from Brown in 
June. 

Harriet Sullivan Wallace, Groton, Conn, 
had to cancel reunion plans because of 
her father's sudden illness. Sent her love 
to all '27ers.

the Red Cross etc. She has a son and a 
granddaughter. She and her husband are 
preparing their summer home for future 
retirement. 

Emily House Maidment, Manchester,

shows! She and her husband have been 
to Alaska, Hawaii, and Europe. She's 
absorbed with nieces, nephews, and grand- 
children, plus church, hospital, and gar- 
den.

is Pres. of the Boston Abbot Club and a 
busy volunteer for Kappa Swap Shop etc. 
Witn a young child and an old house, 
she and her husband never lack for a 
project. 

Summarizing the other questions: Chief 
annoyances have to do with lack of time 
and money. Political opinions were all 
gripes about too many Kennedys, spend- 
ing, and corruption — except for one 
optimist. Answers to "Have I changed?" 
fell into 3 categories — definitely — no 
— and hope so. Most valuable Abbot 
experiences included specific courses, 
learning to think, live with others, friend- 
ships, influence of teachers etc. About 
half wouldn't change the past, others 
generally would take life less seriously. 
As for me, I'd get married sooner!

Our 30th reunion turned out to be a 
very pleasant affair. We all seemed to 
have so much to chat about and so much 
to catch up on. 

Helen Allen Henry, Betty Holihan 
Giblin, and yours truly met at the 
Alumnae Meeting in the chapel before 
lunch and then off to Bailey Dining

all had a "divine" luncheon, our pictures 
taken and off to the Bazaar for a visit

1937 
Rf.union Report 
Eleven members of the class were able 
to be present for Alumnae Day festiv- 
ities. After the Alumnae Association meet- 
ing in the Chapel, we gathered in Draper 
Hall to laugh and talk together and 
renew old friendships. At this time the 
many messages that had been received 
from alumnae were shared and enjoyed. 
A splendid luncheon followed in the 
Bailey Dining Room at which ten of us 
were present, all but Frances Connelly 
Dowd who joined us later in the day. 
After the gay Bazaar held in the Circle 
those who remained were invited to the 
lovely home of Nancy Burns McArdle 
before our Reunion dinner held at Field- 
stones. Miss Hearsey, Miss Hancock and 
Miss Tucker were our special guests for 
dinner. 

Marjorie Boesel Van Winkle was chosen 
as our next Reunion Chairman and 
Frances Connelly Dowd, our Class Fund

Steve, 13, attends the seventh grade in 
Worcester. 

Elizabeth Inman Kirkpatrick hoped 
very much to be at Reunion. However, 
her husband is at Cape Perry in the 
Artie for a year, and so Betty has taken 
a part-time position to help the time 
pass more quickly. She has two teen-age 
boys and a daughter ten years old. 

Elizabeth Melcher Anderson carries on 
three part-time jobs in addition to her 
household duties with four children. 
Her eldest son, Bill, plans to enter Wil- 
liston in the Fall, Caroline is at Derby

all. She has one daughter, a sophomore,

Louise Risley Stever had a wonderful 
trip to London with her husband last

house in Randolph, N. H. which is their 
big news. They have used it for several 
ski trips. At home they have two teen- 
agers and two primaries — all excellent 
skiers. Bunny is very busy at M.I.T. — 
on the board of Matrons Groups as her

ago has two children. He is at the Uni- 
versity of Michigan starting graduate 
work. Jim, is in the 10th grade, John in

lively household with numerous pets as 
well.

is a Foreign Service Officer and they have 
spent 16 years abroad living from 2-3 
years in, Colombia, Chile, Cuba, Pakistan,

herself to make up education credits so 
that she could teach, and is currently 
teaching world history and world geog- 
raphy in a high school near her home. 
She hopes that any of her classmates who 
are in the Washington area will contact 
her. She lives at 425 Hamilton Ave., 
Silver Spring, Md. 

Elizabeth Swint McFarland wished so 
much that she could have joined us for 
Reunion. Her oldest boy, Landy, is in 
the Naval Air Reserves. His squadron 
was called to active duty. At present 
he is in Cuba. The second son, Dick, is 
at Valley Forge Military Academy and 
Allan and Beth are still going to a local 
school. 

Nancy Kincaid Vars has a son in his 
third year at Taft School. Nancy, like 
many others, sent messages of regret at 
not being able to return for Reunion, 
but wished to be remembered to every- 
one. 

Joan Todd Wilkinson had a son, Michael 
S. Jan. 19, 1962. Joan's oldest child is a 
sophomore at Vassar. She writes that she 
is the oldest and youngest mother in the 
class! 

Mary Perrot Whitehill's oldest son 
enters college this Fall. She also has a 
daughter, Joan, 15, and two younger boys 
still in grade school.

who were sorry to miss our 25th and 
sent warm messages to all were: Martha 
Sweeney Read, Jean Nevius, Thelma 
Cutter Leuenberger, Corinne Brooks Cor- 
nish, and Caroline Curtis Carney. 

Thank you all for writing.

Jane Towne Johnston's husband died 
suddenly Nov. 17, 1961. 

Dorothy White Wicker writes, "Ed and 
I celebrated our eighteenth wedding an- 
niversary on Valentine's Day. In some 
ways it seems like yesterday, but when I 
look at my high-school senior, I feel a bit 
older. My second son is our athlete. He is 
15, and weighs 190 pounds. My third 
son is in the fourth grade. The love of 
the whole family is our 4i/ 2 year-old 
daughter." 

1942 

Reunion Report 
To the seven of us who did "Orbit to 
Abbot" for our 20th reunion — Marjorie 
Dean Marsden, Louise Leslie Loud, Gret- 
chen Roemer Gayton and 12 yr. old 
daughter Henrietta, Jane Rutherford, 
Barbara Sanders Dadmun, Ann Taylor 
Debevoise and Gloria Caldarone He- 
garty with 8 yr. old daughter, Laura 
Ellen — it was generally agreed that 
none of us had changed that much. 
Though with tongue in cheek, I'll let 
you draw your own conclusions to the 
following remarks overheard as we were 
determining where to sit for the Alumnae 
Meeting — "Let's sit down front, we 
won't need our glasses." 

Miss Hancock joined our group for 
lunch and took us on a tour of the well- 
equipped language laboratory. We con- 
tinued on to the Bazaar which was de- 
lightful as always. One of the highlights 
was being entertained by a group of 
guitar-strumming Abbot girls who ac- 
companied a singing group from P.A. — 
quite well done. 



Of the seventy letters sent out, we re- 
ceived the following quotable quotes: 
Betty Hardy Verderey has a five month 
old daughter; D. J. Erkert Simon ex- 
pecting her sixth child any day now; Pam 
Bolton Henderson with two children at 
home and three in prep school — daugh- 
ter at St. Anne's in Charlottesville, Va., 
and two boys at Middlesex, Concord, 
Mass.; Rhody Wind Stone working part- 
time for Harvard Medical School and has 
four children; Jeanne Bowersox Wilson 
has a new daughter, second female, fifth 
child and building a new home; Margo 
Goodman Decker wrote that "my husband 
has been division engineer for the 101st 
Airborne at Ft. Campbell following three 
wonderful years in Alaska. Hope to take 
our plane with us and continue flying 
when we leave this summer." Margo has 
four children; Elsie Williams Kehaya 
wrote that her two youngsters are now 
ten and seven and she got to Japan last 
Fall with her husband; Barbara Johnson 
Prest wrote from Francestown, N. H. that 
she and her husband were busy restoring 
the Woodbury Homestead built in 1785. 

We were delighted to receive a reply 
from Oslo Norway — Margaret Sime 
Espeland whose reply with its sim- 
plicity expressed it so well for us all: 
"Unfortunately there is no hope of my 
attending the Reunion of '42 Class. But 
you will all certainly be in my thoughts, 
and not least of all the fun I had and 
good spirit I met with in my years at 
Abbot. Best wishes and blessings to you 
all."

Reunion Report 

Hi 47ers!! Many thanks to the girls 
who made our 15th reunion a gay one. 
A marvelous luncheon was followed by 
the annual Abbot Bazaar done in the 
World's Fair theme. The nice tea at 
Sunset made the day perfect. My mother 
Mrs. W. Shirley Barnard, invited all of 
us to her home for cocktails before 
dinner. 



Barbara Jane French Brandt was elected 
Class Fund Secretary. Our thanks to 
Mouse Morse Abbot who was Secretary 
for the last 5 years. Mouse told us that 
Janet Mclvor's father passed way. Our 
sympathy to Janet. Jane Lewis Gleason 
had news about Helen Dowd who lives 
in Cincinnati Ohio. She has 2 small 
children. She and her husband spend part 
of their time traveling in Europe and 
the U. S. 

Bev DeCesare Nassar has been in touch 
with Mary Lo White Pepper who at 
present is living in Tripoli, Libya. Mary 
Lo is having a wonderful time studying 
Italian, going to concerts and taking ad- 
vantage of the fine art of the country. 
The temperature ranges from 108 degrees 
when the wind is over the desert to 63 
degrees when the wind is over the sea. 
Mary Lo and her husband expect to be 
back in the U. S. sometime this summer. 

Ann Clemens Lowman's husband is 
with the foreign service. They are at 
present living in Cambridge. They have 
a daughter who is six. Ann and her 
family expect to receive orders this sum- 
mer to go to Dusseldorf, Germany. Ann 
met Chris von Goehen Curtis in Wash- 
ington. Her husband is also with the 
foreign service. Ann has been in con- 
tact with Lois Derby Taylor who is living 
in Dhakron, Saudi Arabia. They had 
planned a meeting in Vienna but due to 
the unexpected they were not able to get 
together. 

For a change of pace my husband and 
I bought an old house $ years ago and 
remodeled it. At present we are attempt- 
ing to paint the outside together. 

Jane Weldon Boland Aff. '46 joined our 
class reunion and added her sense of 
humor to the festivities. 

Do let us hear all your news and 
please start planning now for our 20th 
to make it the biggest ever. You really 
don't know what you are missing. 

News gleaned from the postal cards: 
Dimp Hartley Murray was not able to 
make our reunion this year due to a trip 
to Europe. Lucky girl Dimp! She sends her 
best and hopes to make our 20th. 

Our sincere sympathy goes to Sue Rob- 
bins deWolf upon the death of her 
parents. Our congratulations to her on 
the birth of a son, May, 1960. Due to 
moving she was not able to make the 
reunion but we hope to see her on our 
20th. She is spending the summer in New 
Hampshire.

Janice Cole Johnson felt that Los 
Angeles is just too far away to make our 
15th but sent her best to all. 

Mackie Hall Kernan was busy having 
children on our 5th and 10th reunion 
and couldn't make this one either, but 
she is determined to make our 20th. How 
about some statistics on your children? 
She says to tell every one "that dizzy red- 
head sends her love". 

Due to her 5th child arriving around 
the first of May, Ann Flowers Howlett 
could not be with us, but she will be here 
in spirit — good luck. Let us hear about 
the new arrival, Ann. 

Em Gierasch Savage and Sally McDufhe 
are living in our 49th state and feel it is 
a bit too far. Em lives in Anchorage and 
Sally lives in Fairbanks so they have been 
able to get together. Em has 3 children. 

Ann Aulis Ronan writes, "I am up to 
my eyes in graduate work, substitute 
teaching and mothering my three girls".

family activities and could not make re- 
union this year. 

Carol McLean Bly had a daughter, 
Mary, January 26. It is her first child. 

Peg Kimball Montgomery is now living 
in Texas. She felt Texas a little too far 
away, but sent her love. 

Edith Flather wanted to be with us, but 
she had a meeting at Northwestern that 
day, and felt the trip from Madison, 
Wisconsin a little too far. 

I heard from Dolly Sharp Fiske, Ginny 
Eason Weinmann, Maud Savage, Shirley 
Sawyer Williams, Jean Ritchey Bora and 
Diane Gould Berkeley. Diane was in 
Europe. They all said they would be 
thinking of us on that day. 

We were sorry that Sally Humason Brad- 
lee's trip from New York was canceled.

Reunion Report 

15 of us, or 14 of our class, were on 
hand for our first reunion and very 
enjoyable it was. Louisa Lehmnn and 
Anne Gramkow, who will both be mar- 
ried June 2, were fairly floating along 
and very happy. Pat Bijur was with us 
and told of her recent engagement. 
Carolyn Cooper has given up Eloise-type 
projects for work in a Biology Laboratory. 
Hope Hamilton Pettegrew is now teach- 
ing in Westfield, New Jersey. Her hus- 
band, Bob, has a new position with the 
Wall St. Journal. Nancy Ruhlin Plummer

ing this year. Nancy's husband, who ac- 
companied her to reunion, is working

on Wall St. Debbie Tillson will graduate 
from Massachusetts General the end of 
the month. We all enjoyed seeing Deb's 
mother, also an Abbot alumna at the 



[39 



reunion. Ellen Parker has a job with a 
very smart shop in Boston and her chic 
outfit was certainly an indication. 

Lulu Suhbacher Cutler was at her 
bubbling best and has been elected the 
reunion chairman for 1967, so start 
planning to come right now! 

Janet McLean is marrying Bobby this 
summer and I know everyone will be 
delighted to hear same. Penny Post, still 
as cheerful as ever, is busy working in 
Cambridge. 

I gleaned much news from the post cards 
you all kindly sent back: 

Joan Pelletier Isabel is expecting a 
baby the middle of June. She and Dick 
live in Bloomington, Indiana where he 
is in the MBA program and will finish 
June '63. Bevie Lord has been ill this 
past winter — we send wishes for good 
health, Bev. Anne Bowden Morris had a 
little girl March 9th "with wads of black 
hair". Congratulations Anne! Lydia Corn- 
wall Bishop had her second baby — 
another little boy — just before reunion, 
and I know how busy you must be Lyd! 
Patty Brcnnan Kfoury is out in South 
Bend, Indiana, teaching second grade and 
is expecting an addition to her family in 
October. Dian Dane is completing her 
"internship" in the first grade and will 
soon graduate from the University of 
Miami. Carol Gaines and Dinah Hallo- 
well are traveling in Europe. Carol will 
return late this summer, and Dinah 
plans to visit Emily Meyer Michalopaulos 
in Genoa. Emily was married the 17th of 
March after completing a secretarial 
course in New York last fall. Nancy 
Davison is no longer a stewardess — 
she is working as a receptionist at the 
Palo Alto Medical Clinic and I under- 
stand that she and her mother, who is 
visiting her for a month, are vacationing 
at the moment in Hawaii. Nancy's sister, 
Judy, who is president of the ACA at 
Abbot this year, was one of the student 
speakers at the Alumnae meeting held in 
the Chapel. 

Jacquie Goodspeed is a senior at Con- 
necticut this year and is pursuing her 
interest in music. Libby Horan is living

Luquer Boswell is in Charlottesville, 
Virginia where John is finishing law 



school. Anne is busy working on a French 
program for 240 pupils. Kathy Earth- 
rowl Syna will graduate from Bennington

month old baby. Debbie Smith Regan was 
married January 6 and moved across the 
country to Los Angeles. Debbie is with 
the programming research and analysis 
group at the Union Bank in Los Angeles. 
Judy Medwed Stahl had her baby the 
first of May — she lives just one-half 
hour from Andover and had hoped to be 
at the reunion, but babies do take time! 

Penny Holbrook announced her engage- 
ment April 15 to Watson D. Reid and 
will be married September 1st. Watson 
is in his second year at Columbia Medical 
School. Paula Slifer has also announced 
her engagement to Judd Cornell Zandstra 
of Grand Rapids, Michigan. He is a 
graduate of the University of Michigan 
and is now a student in Business Ad- 
ministration. Paula is a secretary in Ann 
Arbor, Michigan. 

Judy Botnick is living and working in 
Boston — she loves the city and plans to 
stay there a while longer. Cindy McGuire 
and Mimi Ganem are living in Cam- 
bridge. Cindy has comprehensives in May 
and a wedding in June — sounds quite 
busy for you Cindy! Mimi is a working 
girl in Cambridge. 

Karen Jones sent a wire on May 15th 
to the Class, but unfortunately it arrived 
late in the day — it read: " '57'ers — here's 
to a great reunion, thinking of you. 
Coming in '67 or bust". Many thanks. 
Karen, wish you might have been with us. 

Marcia Colby Frame was married the 
14th of April and is now living in Syra- 
cuse. 

Mary Ann Spurgeon Lewis spent a 
short time with her family in Newton,

They are now stationed in Dover Dela- 
ware. Sam was elected Alumnae Fund 
Chairman for our class at the reunion. 
Her address is "Woodscove", Cooper Rd., 
RD, Dover, Delaware. 

The entire class joins in thanking Wiggs 
Carter and Nancy Davison for the splendid 
job they have done. 

The only sad part of our day at Abbot 
was the news from Mr. Butler that some 
children had been digging in the senior 
garden area and had absconded with our 
treasure box. If it is ever recovered we 
will open it at the next reunion. 



[40] 



I send hearty greetings to all — we 
will see you in '67 — love 

Mary Wellman Bates 
Reunion Chairman 



1958 

Anne Metcalf Reiss writes, "My hus- 
band is an instructor in the Philosophy 
department at Connecticut College and 
is a Ph.D. candidate at the Boston Uni- 
versity Graduate School. I am working in 
the lihrary, doing a little bit of every- 
thing and picking up a lot of information, 
especially about the Dewey decimal sys- 
tem! I think that I am the youngest 
"faculty wife", but I sneak into the dorms 
occasionally for a hen session with the 
students — several Abbot alumnae are 
here." 

Engaged 

June Hamilton to Nathan Noyes Wi- 
thington. He graduated from Governor

1959 

Diane Gerros writes of her various 
"adventures" in Spain. She's bought a 
car and has been traveling also in France. 
Her art course at the Prado sounds 
marvelous. Holly Robertson spent a week 
with Diane on her way back from an art 
trip to Florence. Diane plans to go to 
Scotland before returning in August. She'll 
be back at Middlebury in September. 

Tina Savell is planning a European 
summer. She had a part in the Junior 
show at Connecticut this Spring. She 
sees Lolly Bell and writes that they both 
are having a busy spring. 

Mary Louise Lockwood has been elected 
president of the Middlebury Chapter of 
Kappa Gamma and is also a candidate for 
Junior Week-End queen. She's planning 
to spend the summer at home. 

Jane Thompson has a job as governess 
for three boys in Germany this summer. 
Sounds like fun! The February Bulletin 
incorrectly reported that Jane was mar- 
ried. Please forgive our error, Jane. 

We have just heard that Elizabeth 
Greene was married to John Houston 



Reid on January 26, 1962 in Denver. 
Colo. Their new address is 2990 Poplar 
St. Denver. 

Elsie Taylor spent ten days in the 
Virgin Islands between semesters and also 
spent her Spring vacation there. If anyone 
is interested in renting an apartment in 
Georgetown next year, drop Elsie a line 
at 265 Langdon St., Madison 3, Wis. 

Mary Louise Lockwood 
Neu>s Secretary 



1960 

Wish I had bundles of news to offer 
I know that a great deal more has hap- 
pened to members of our class than I 
have been informed of. Nevertheless, here 
is something of what has been going on 
for some of you. 

Ada Panayatakou writes that she is 
studying hard in Greece so that she 
might enter medical school there. Ada 
says, "Please tell our class that I'll be 
hurt if anyone comes to Greece and does 
not come to see me". Her address is 127 
Licourgous St., Kallithea, Athens, Greece. 

In February, Lynne Furneaux, Hannah 
Jopling, and Maggie Elsemore saw one 
another at Princeton. Nice way to have 
a reunion! Lynne enjoyed her Spring 
vacation in Canada. She seems to have 
been kept quite busy. 

Perhaps no surprise to any of you, but 
Charlotte Palmer had a delightful Spring 
vacation in Quadalajara, Mexico. Char- 
lotte plans to return to Quadalajara at 
the end of this summer after a trip to 
Europe. Congratulations to you, Char, 
on making the Dean's list at Cornell. 

Another reunion took place in February 
in Boston. Amelia Comas, Adrienne Davis, 
and Olea Smith must have enjoyed their 
visit together. Olea went to Ft. Myeis, 
Florida, to sun and play over her Spring 
vacation. She spent the final three days 
of her vacation in Washington, D. C. I 
understand that Cindy Bump was also 
in Florida at the same time. Mary Feld- 
blum went to Texas for her holiday. 

Mike (Dyer) Lalli relates the exciting 
news to you that she and Peter will 
become proud parents of their first child 
in June. Mike, I know that everyone joins 
with me in wishing happiness to the 
three Lallis. 

Aida Sharabati is now studying Eco- 
nomics at the London School of Econom- 
ics. Her address is St. Marguerite's Hall. 
Bedford Place, London, England.

A CARTOON I saw last summer showed a small boy 
sobbing as he lay on his bed at camp while an earnest 
young counsellor assured him "But these are the happiest 
years of your life!" Like so many cartoons, this one left 
me with a taste of ashes. It represented a difficulty which 
confronts family and school — or anyone who is concerned 
with humanity. At school we do not even have the joys of 
camp life to offer our girls; we have to "work" them as one 
trains race horses. The question is, does their happiness 

concern us? 

Of course it does, but even 

the fondest parent knows that 

^^ - skill and competence can only 

(jtl&&ti4'lCb6> be § ras P ed thr o u g h hard work, 

w I repetition, and practice, none 

of which is calculated to de- 
light. 

I am not going to propose a questionnaire "Were you 
happy at Abbot?" or "What have been the happiest years of 
your life?" For many of you, these may be yet to come. 
Sometimes we only recognize happiness in the past. Perhaps 
teachers or a school can only offer a few materials with 
which to build a structure of happiness: curiosity, in- 
tellectual as well as physical; competition so that one's 
standards rise; responsibility for oneself so that character 
and personality become more than a facial expression; 
frustration or failure so one values success much more; and 
the most obvious — the experience of being a friend to 
strangers so that one learns how to be liked and eventually 
to be loved. 

Abbot doesn't guarantee happiness either immediate 
or in the future. But I take heart constantly from the alum- 
nae I know, who seem to have found this quality some- 
where in their lives! Can I not hope that their school gave 
them something with which to build?

Faculty Facts 



Mile. Arosa, head of the French department, spent the summer 
teaching French and Phonetics at the School of Music and Fine Arts 
in the palace of Fontainebleau. Mile. Nadia Boulanger is the director 
of the school. Mile. Arosa found it a wonderful experience and is 
looking forward to next summer. Any one interested in advanced study 
in Music or Art may write to her for further information. 

We regret to report that several faculty members are not returning 
this year. Mrs. Bruce Bugbee of the English department, Mrs. James 
Burns of the Mathematics department, Mrs. Gerald Ferris of the French 
department and Mrs. John Greeley of the Latin department have given 
up teaching and are devoting their time to their families. Miss Yi-an 
Chang of the Music department became Mrs. Wen Chung Chou in 
June. She is teaching privately and is living at 22 East 10th St., New 
York 3, N. Y. Miss Louise Lewis is now teaching English at St. Paul's 
Episcopal College in Lawrenceville, Va. Miss Jorunn Buzzi of the 
Physical Education department is teaching at the University of New 
Hampshire and Miss Carolyn Pike of the same department has returned 
to St. Johns, Newfoundland, to teach. 

There are several new faculty members, Miss Judith Bratt, a recent 
graduate of Vassar College, joins the Mathematics department. 

Miss Elizabeth Foulke will divide her time between administrative 
work and teaching History. She received her A.B. and M.A. degrees 
from Bryn Mawr College and recently taught at St. Anne's School in 
Virginia. 

Mrs. Wayne Frederick, whose husband is on the faculty of Phillips 
Academy, will teach French. She received her M.A. degree from Columbia 
University and studied at the Sorbonne. Mrs. Frederick has been teaching 
at the Isidore Newman School in New Orleans, La. 

Mrs. Janice Fukushima has joined the English department. She 
graduated magna cum laude from Radcliffe College and has been teach- 
ing English in Japan for the past two years. Her husband will be 
attending Boston University Graduate school. 

Mrs. Lynwood Howard will be the new dietician and house super- 
intendent. Mrs. Howard graduated from Framingham State College 
and comes to Abbot from the Taft School in Watertown, Conn. 

Miss Erika Niemann will be teaching Mathematics and Physics. She 
received her degree from the University of Berlin and has been teaching 
at the Droste Hulshoff School in Berlin. Miss Niemann is an exchange 
teacher from West Berlin. 

Miss Lily Siao, a teacher of piano, is a graduate of the Juilliard 
School of Music and for the past year has been studying in Paris on 
a Fulbright Award. She taught for several years in New York schools. 

Miss Ruth Stevenson, who will teach English, received her A.B. 
degree from Smith and her M.A. degree from the University of Rich- 
mond in Virginia. 

Mrs. Oscar Witten, who joins the French department, was born in 
Paris and studied at the Sorbonne, Universities of Frankfort, Freiburg 
and Berlin, and attended the Graduate School of Columbia University. 

Mrs. Capen Abbott of Camden, Me., a graduate of Connecticut 
College, will be the house mother in Abbey House. 

[6] 



For twenty lour years Miss Hope 
Coolidge carried the responsibility 
for sheltering, feeding, and caring for 
the physical comfort of the Abbot 
community. Her clear mind, calm 
demeanor, and imaginative planning 
power kept the establishment running 
smoothly through times of scarcity 
of food and labor, changes in per- 
sonnel of all the ranks, and crises of 
all kinds. She contributed much time 
and help to the wider Andover com- 
munity, notably during the war years. By her conscientious care, without 
sacrificing quality, she has contributed greatly to the economic stability 
of Abbot. We are truly grateful for all her work, and I know all those 
who have known her wish her happiness in her retirement. 




/ G : =^0 



Mrs. Paul Werner retired in June from the teaching of English and 
advising the Editorial Board of Courant during the past six years. 

She is noteworthy for her keen interest in her students and in all 
kinds of modern teaching experiments. Her high standards of literary 
performance made her teaching most effective; her imaginative ideas 
about enriching the experience of the girls produced a number of in- 
teresting speakers for Abbot and some 
stimulating excursions for our stu- 
dents. Her work with Courant 
brought it continued progress, and 
our magazine is now nationally rec- 
ognized for its excellence. 

Mr. and Mrs. Werner are living 
now year-round in Peterboro, and 
they would, I know, be glad to see 
any of their former students who 
might be passing near.

News from the Circle 

Reprinted fro?n Cynosure 

Abbot will have a tri-mester system this year. There will be exams 
in December and May, and tests in March. 

There are several reasons for this change in Abbot's testing system. 
One reason is that colleges want Seniors' records as soon as possible. 
Women's colleges often request them by February. 

Last year mid-year exams were held earlier than in previous years 
so that grades would be ready for this date. Classes spent most of their 
time after Christmas Vacation reviewing. 

With exams at the end of December, the work of the fall term can 

be completed, and new work started when the winter term begins. Less 

tension is expected after Christmas Vacation because students will not 
return worrying about impending mid-years. 

March tests will not interrupt the class schedule, but will be given 
during class periods. Each teacher may decide when she wants to give 
the test. The exams in May will remain the same. 

* * * 

An increasing demand for and a growing enrollment in the lab- 
oratory sciences made it necessary to have more laboratories. This 
year 110 students requested chemistry, physics, or biology. As a result 
the classrooms on the lower floor of Abbot Hall have been remodeled. 
The rooms are now a biology laboratory, and a physics laboratory. Both 
were formerly French classrooms. One was at one time a biology lab- 
oratory and the other a home economics room. The use of the rooms 
in Abbot Hall seemed the most immediate solution to the problem 

of lack of space. 

• * * 

This year several changes have been made by the Student Govern- 
ment. The Demerit Council will no longer consist of the vice-presidents 
of each class, but rather the proctors of each corridor. These proctors 
will be nominated by the corridor-teachers, and elected by the students. 
Although proctors will still pull down shades and say goodnight, they

will now be given added responsibility. To help lessen the noise on 
the corridor and to nphold the general rules, they will be able to give 
demerits to anyone who does not cooperate. 

• * * 

On Saturday, September 22nd, the whole school migrated to Ips- 
wich for the annual old-girl new-girl picnic. A bright sun, the first 
seen in years of picnicking at Crane's Beach, greeted all of Abbot as it 
piled out of the buses. After indulging in the usual feast of hot dogs, 
potato salad, peaches, and gingerbread, everyone either sat around and 
talked or wandered down the beach towards the castle. Some girls, 
who had walked first and then wanted lunch, missed out on the ginger- 
bread, but nevertheless, all, including some stray dogs, were well fed. 

• * * 

The annual Abbot — P. A. "Mixer" was held on September 29th. 
The mixer officially started when couples emerged from the crowded 
conglomeration of Abbot girls and Andover boys in the McKeen Rooms 
or in the Gymnasium. These couples then wandered to the dining 
room where they were served fried chicken, string beans, rolls, and 
ice cream. At about 7:00 the Gym couples and the Draper couples were 
united in Davis Hall, where the "Aces" played under green lights. Despite 
the slippery, crowded floor, hardly conducive to dancing, all managed 
to slide around to the strains of tunes suich as "Exodus" and "Summer- 
time Blues". 

NEWS from the CLUBS 

The BOSTON club held its fall meeting at Sunset House at Abbot 
on October 24. The faculty joined the club members for dessert. The 
speakers were Miss Eleanor Tucker, Director of Studies, Miss Erika. 
Niemann, German Science exchange teacher from West Berlin, student 
leaders of Student Government, Abbot Christian Association, Abbot 
Athletic Association, and Cynosure, the school newspaper. Jane Sullivan 
introduced students from Kenya, South Africa, Afghanistan, Dominican 
Republic, and England. The Intoxic-Eights, the Senior singing group 
entertained. 

The OLD COLONY club met at Snow Lodge in Bridgewater on 
October 25 for luncheon. Jane Sullivan brought news of the school. 

Mrs. Crane met with a group of alumnae and parents at the home 
of Susan Ripley Ward '28 in Denver, Colorado on October 23. The next 
day a group from Boulder met for luncheon at the Harvest House at 
the University of Colorado.

From the Alumnae Secretary's Desk 

It is a distinct pleasure to report to you that the Alumnae Fund 
has just completed its most successful year. Never before have we had 
as many contributors, as high a percentage of contributors, or as large 
a dollar total. 

Our goal of $20,000 was exceeded by $181.67, and we were de- 
lighted to present this amount to the Board of Trustees as an ad- 
dition to the Faculty Salary and Scholarship Endowment Funds. 

Although we raised our percentage of givers from 35 % to 42 % , 
a most creditable gain, we felt short of our goal of 50%. 

Each year the American Alumni Council publishes a. report on 
Annual Giving and Alumnae support which includes all types of schools, 
universities and colleges. The latest published report for 1960-1961 
has just been released. 

The following table shows a comparison of Abbot with other girls'

This chart gives you an idea how we stood in relation to other 
schools in 1960-1961. This year, we will in all probability make a better 
showing. 

We are grateful to each one of you on the long list of contributors. 
A special word of thanks goes to the Class Fund Secretaries and the 
Area Representatives who played a key role in achieving this record.

grandchildren. 



1922 
Betty Brewster Thompson writes, "Each 
year we take four or five weeks in May 
traveling to Florida. We are a community- 
minded family. George is in his second 
year as chairman of our Red Cross 
Chapter. My daughter, Marvelle, is in 
charge of Blood Bank operations. I am 
chairman of the Blood Program in our 5- 
town chapter, and a working trustee of 
the hospital." 

Juliet Haskell Carrington writes, 

"No one regretted more than I that I 
could not be at the 30th reunion of the 
Class of 1922. Maybe I can make it in 
1967 — I hope so. 

"My roster of grandchildren remains at 
two, David Gardner Reed, my daughter's 
son, and John Cabell Carrington, my son's 
son. David is four and a half years old.

traveling: Ft. Myers, Clearwater and Jack-

going to nursery school and looking for- 
ward to kindergarten the second half of 
next year. John is a big, bouncing boy of 
just lately two. He already wears size-5 
clothes, which tells you all. He is learning 
many words and has a good vocabulary 
for a two-year-old. He is also a beautiful 
child. His curls would be the envy of. 
many a girl. 

"My mother, Mrs. Haskell, my daughter, 
her husband, Karl Reed, David, and I are 
about to embark on a trip West. They will 
fly from Philadelphia to join us, since 
time does not permit their driving all the 
way with us. I shall have the fun of 
seeing my birthplace, Salt Lake City, for 
the first time that will register. We are 
not going to Seattle. It would be too 
strenuous and too time consuming. 

"I am still playing the organ for ser- 
vices at our St. Matthias Episcopal Church 
and being Chairman of our Library 
Board. We had to find a new librarian 
recently, and after advertising in the 
Library Journal, I received letters from as 
far as Germany and Yugoslavia! Both ap- 
plicants had worked for the U.S.I.S. for 
years. I'm on our City Planning Commis- 
sion, too, which is most interesting. I 
read of all your activities with much 
interest."

"After seven years in orbit geogra-

travelling in ecumenical and sociological

the Interdenominational Religious Work 
Foundation of Virginia. The work is for 
and with populations and personnel of 
prisons, hospitals and institutions yet at 
the same time with the churches of the 17 
denominations which support this unique 
program providing chaplains and religious 
services to the rejected, the forgotten, and 
the sick. 

"Bill and Bob are now seniors at Ober- 
lin College. Last summer Bill attended the 
Human Relations Institute at Fisk Uni- 
versity and worked at the Country Store 
in Rockport, Mass., where he saw many 
friends while doling out tangy cheeses 
and foaming root beers. As usher, choir 
singer, member of the College Social 
Board and organizer of the Lorain County 
Race Relations Committee he has had a 
busy pear. This summer, for a change of 
pace, he is attending the University of 
Richmond and working on part-time jobs 
with his brother. 

"At the meeting of the Dr. Schweitzer 
essay award winners another Nobel Peace 
Prize Winner, Father Pire, invited Bob to 
his Seminar in Belgium. Through help 
from the Glen Ridge Church, and a job 
with the Ecumenical Work Camp and re-

fugee-study Bob was enabled to hitchhike 
abroad. He sat at the feet of the theo- 
logian, Dr. Karl Barth, slept in the vine- 
yards, gardens and university room of 
Dr. Schweitzer, and visited the home of 
Frederic Oberlin. As recently elected Presi- 
dent of the Ohio United Christian Campus

just graduated from Maumee Valley 
Country Day School and is at the Uni- 
versity of Cincinnati for a degree in 
nursing. Ted graduated from Howe Mili- 
tary School and is a freshman at Michigan 
State studying forestry. Dick has two 
more years at Ohio State and Bob one 
more at Johns Hopkins . . . Needless to say 
father and mother will stay home and 
tend to our knitting with four in college." 



1933 

Louise McClary writes, "I am always a 
bit disappointed on turning to 1933 class 
notes — there's a scarcity of news from 
these members. I seem to be 'stagnant' 
— am still Executive Director for our 
Franklin County Health Association. It is 
indeed a challenge — at times actually fun, 
but plenty of hard work throughout the 
year organizing two annual fund cam- 
paigns, planning TB and Heart programs, 
trying to help educate John Q. Public 
toward better health."

1947 

Nancy Scripture Garrison writes, 

"It was impossible, for varied and 
boring reasons, for me to make the fif- 
teenth reunion of the Class of '47. How- 
ever, perhaps things won't be as frantic 
in five years for the twentieth. 

"My family stands now at four; Gay, 8, 
Tim, 6, Anne, 4, and Fritz our "baby", 3. 
The much-maligned round of suburban 
activity suits me perfectly, I'm afraid. As 
a part-time proposition I am working as 



interior decorator for a builder who de- 
signs beautiful colonial houses in an ex- 
alted price range. This is great fun, and 
a healthy outlet for my love of spending 
money! As president of the Wayland Area 
Women's Republican Club I've managed 
to get into politics in a very small way, 
and hope to make it bigger when I've 
learned a lot more about it. Only an 
important Harvard reunion this June for 
my husband is keeping me away from the 
convention in Worcester. Politics is a 
field which a lot more women with high 
ideals should become involved in!" 



1948

Frances Nolde Ladd writes, "Carol

came to Lagos to spend a long Christmas 
week end with us. We had a glorious 
time catching up with each other, and 
trying to make Christmas seem like home 
(a bit difficult in the tropics). They are 
with Mobil Oil in Enufu, Eastern Region, 
whereas we have had Lagos, Western 
Region, as our base. Carol has been 
teaching French to Nigerian girls and 
loving every minute of it. Lagos has be- 
come a cosmopolitan city with every 
nationality imaginable represented. I have 
thoroughly enjoyed living here as I am 
a city girl at heart. I took a correspond- 
ence course from the New York School 
of Interior Design. I have particularly 
enjoyed my work for a children's hospital 
and I also organized a committee on 
youth activities which worked in con- 
junction with the Nigerian Federation of

1S57 

My head is hung in shame. Wiggs sent 
me a long newsy letter at the end of 
August, and I lost it! And I only read it 
once — hurriedly — so remember very 
little. 

I do remember that Wiggs and Wade 
were planning a trip to Hawaii during 
the beginning of September, and that 
Mimi Ganem was traveling out here in 
California during the summer (why 
didn't she look me up?!!) 

Maybe the reason I've been so disorgan- 
ized is that I'm engaged to be married on 
December 22 to Dr. Duane Miller, a re- 
sident in psychiatry at the Palo Alto 
Hanford Medical Center. He graduated 
from the University of Oklahoma Medical 
School in 1960. Needless to say, I'm 
probably the happiest girl in the world 
these days. 

Again, my apologies for losing Wigg's 
letter — she'll probably give up on me 
pretty soon! 

My best to everyone at Abbot — wish 
I could visit sometime.

fTlHE literature of 18th century England, with which the 
-■■ Senior-Mids are grappling, reflects the "gulf between 
human folly and human intelligence" as one critic speak- 
ing of Alexander Pope puts it. At Abbot there is in process 
a debate which rather resembles those of two centuries 
ago. Student Government is examining itself, and training 
its own fine intelligence on various aspects of natural "folly" 
to see how order can best be maintained. It is remarkable 
that this enterprise is being engaged in by the whole school 
— the whole Student Government Association, in other 
words. Cynosure has published an entire issue devoted to a 
wide variety of observations and ideas which illustrate very 
forcefully the intelligence I spoke of. I have confidence that 

this concern with the principles 
and practices of community 
government will have a very salu- 

CfJi&etiftQd* tary effect on Abbot and even 

* 9 upon these various communities 

which our students will find them- 
selves part of after they leave here. 

Our new trimester schedule seems to be working well. It is 
strange to be at January's end without being surrounded by 
exams! The winter term seems to be running as fast as the 
tides of the Bay of Fundy. 

I cannot possibly end without expressing my great apprecia- 
tion for the response of the Alumnae to the annual call for 
financial support. I know very well that this is not the only 
kind of support we need or receive from you, but for 
tangible things, I do want to give my visual thanks!

New Adventures in Learning 

by Mary Minard '55 
Head of History Department 

Teaching at Abbot is an exciting and challenging experience. The 
faculty is constantly searching lor new ways of enriching the regular 
course schedule and of meeting and encouraging the girls' enthusiasm 
lor learning. During this second semester the English and History De- 
partments are experimenting with several new courses — two seminars 
and a series of lectures which will, we hope, broaden the knowledge 
which the girls bring to the traditional, required courses and, at the 
same time, accustom the students to the demands of advanced college 
courses. 

Mrs. John Sisson, the head of the English Department, is offering to 
interested seniors a series of four lectures giving a background in the 
trends of philosophic thought in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, 
beginning with German Romanticism and discussing also Transcendent- 
alism and Existentialism. Readings are taken directly from authors of 
these movements: Goethe and Hauptmann of the German Romantics, 
the Transcendentalists Emerson, Melville and Henry James, and Jean 
Paul Sarte and Samuel Beckett, leaders of the Existentialist movement. 

The seniors may also participate in an English seminar in literature 
of the twentieth century proposed so that the girls will read more widely 
in good contemporary novels, poetry, and drama and so acquire a more 
sound basis of judgment of the literature of their own time. During the 
weekly two-hour session led by Miss Margaret Way, an individual oral 
report is given, followed by a general discussion of the author under 
consideration. Readings are taken from twentieth century novels from 
James Joyce to William Golding, from selected poems written since 
World War I, and from contemporary drama including plays of the 
Irish theatre at the turn of the century, the American theatre of the 
thirties and forties, and plays of such playwrights of today as John 
Osborne. (continued) 



Abbot has as yet no plan for regular sabbatical leaves but 
is hopeful of being able to establish one before long. As 
a beginning, Miss Eleanor Tucker, Director of Studies, will 
be away from school for the second half of this year. She 
will spend a part of the time on a. busman's holiday, 
touring the country with frequent stops at college campuses. 
In April she will embark on a round-the-world tour, which 
we all hope will be entirely full of delight and free from 
care!

The seniors have greeted these adventures in learning with the same 
enthusiasm which they have brought to the seminar introduced by the 
History Department. The history seminar, entitled "America in the 
Twentieth Century", is offered to a selected group of eleven seniors who 
have shown outstanding ability and interest in the senior American 
history course and is designed to be an extension and intensification of 
that course. Under conditions as closely equaling an advanced college 
seminar as possible, the girls are studying twentieth century American 
art and architecture, economics, the foreign relations of the United States 
particularly with Eastern Asia, and political philosophy, each topic 
taught by a member of the department. In the weekly two-hour period, 
the girls give oral reports, discuss the assigned readings and, it is hoped, 
come to a wider and more real understanding of the America which will 
be theirs to shape in the future. 



Oh, to be a Science Teacher 

by Pamela }. Tinker 
Head of Science Department 

I am ashamed to say that, at the exact moment of my prone crawl 
with a piece of chalk and a yardstick over the Abbot Hall, Room 1 floor, 
with doubtful consonance from the gentleman who witnessed this caper 
of chalking and talking, all thought of altruism fled! I was irretrievably 
committed (so I thought) to get a new laboratory or, to get someone to 
say that I could go ahead. This was my last and final didactic proof that 
sinks and drains and pipes would fit. You have no idea how excited a 
mere science teacher can get about sinks and pipes and pegs and cup- 
boards or even just mere space. Enough of this! 

Yes, the miracle happened in September of 1962. The Science De- 
partment suffered a real increase in surface area and our fourth lab: 
with microscopes, an analytical balance, a redundant ice box and stock 
and apparatus, some new, some from the old Chemistry and Biology 
labs, came into use. Now we have more science students and more space. 

Our Purpose 

With a very open mind towards a liberal education and a great 
respect for the successes of the past, Abbot has not overly pushed its 
science courses in a time of scientific revolution when this major in- 
fluence on cultural, economic and political patterns is evident. One pur- 
pose and one obligation is to educate Abbot girls to develop insight 
into the factual knowledge of every conceivable aspect of life. We must, j 
therefore, be dynamic in accepting this responsibility and make our 

[6] 



contribution through their natural curiosity of their own environment. 
This is innate, a thrilling potential on which to work, of ceaseless 
wonder and yet imparts its discipline. The reward, probably unique to 
a teacher, is evident. 

True, Abbot's count of science majors graduated in recent years is 
very encouraging, but perhaps even more than the career girls, the 
valid criterion of our success lies in the majority group, our output of 
informed citizens, soon to be voters. We hope that these can at least 
start to follow and read intelligently, thus forming opinions and useful 
points of view when their ideas are applied and tested on such everyday 
but immense problems as 'Atomic Energy', 'World Populations', 'D.N.A.', 
'The Space Probe', and that they see them as more than mere billion 
dollar expenditures in government material and research. 

Presently, we have 2 Chemistry, 1| Physics, 3 Biology and 1 Junior 
Science group. We are adopting sone new curricula approaches besides 
visual and practical aids. Chemistry can move back to more open ended 
experiment and projects outside its normal laboratory work, and girls are 
doing individual investigations for their biology essays. Our Spring term 
dissection and embryology programme in Biology is quite advanced and 
one of the highlights of the 11th and 1 12th grade courses. 

The Junior Science has a basis of standard physics and chemistry 
and then turns to earth science and minerology, cosmetic, bleaching, 
dyeing and kitchen chemistry, sound and music and finally a short 
unit on space. 

Re-organization 

Next year we plan to re-organize and institute a new advanced 
course which may be called Biology II, since a prerequisite will be 
Biology I, but it will include both Organic and Biochemistry and 
Physiology. Herein appears to be the intrinsic needs and interests of 
those present students who do not favour the Physics followed by 
Math IV courses. The later, incidentally, is an excellent foundation for 
any science major. 

1963-1964 will then offer Junior Science in Gr. 9, Biology I in Gr. 10 
for capable students who can accelerate as well as two groups of Biology I, 
two or three groups of Chemistry and Physics in Gr. 11 and 12. 

Our present graduation requirement is but 1 laboratory science. We 
hope that soon 2 or 3 of the 16 or 17 credits will invariably be in science. 
We have hopes that the new course will fill a. demand heard for 
several years now from girls who were loath to give up their Chemistry 
and Biology after one short year's study. By the time one has realized 
that every living organism has an internal and external environment, 
a personal chemistry and physiology and is vacillating yet within the 
bounds of most chemical and physical laws, one has found the lock. 
Believe me, by the time this same organism is perceived to have evolved 

I as part of a master plan yet remained unique, and is to be reducible 
to atoms and molecules, some of which can reduplicate themselves with 

i known mathematical probability, the key also is found and one — does 
_ want — to know — more. But Abbot has said "No, it is simply 
impossible to schedule another course". Now, by the genius of our sched- 
uling committee, Abbot is determined to make it possible in the future. 

[7] 



Incentive to Progress 

Actually we have every incentive to progress. Dozens of fascinating 
careers are wide open, and industry and Biological and Marine stations 
introduce prospectives during school vacations. The National Science 
Foundation sponsors excellent courses within the universities and col- 
leges for 11th grade students. I can personally testify to the modernity 
and value of the teacher refresher programmes. Research as a career 
may even be tasted and tested by interested students. These are incredible 
opportunities. We are glad to have Miss Hancock with a senior group 
back behind the telescope, coping with the added artificial satellites 
as well as the natural heavenly bodies. 

Our museum and field trips gain in variety and we welcome speakers. 
If you or your husband can help us here, do please come along and 
tell of your work or experiences to a small informal or a full school 
audience. We should be encouraged by your interest and grateful for 
your stimulation. Won't you come and be a science teacher for a wee 
while? We may bombard you with questions but will eventually say 
"Thank you" and reluctantly let you go.

IT was a day of delight for many of us — especially those of us who 
flourish most when the sun is warm and spring is in every new blade 
of grass and every long-expected blossom. Abbot's one hundred and 
thirty-fourth birthday was happily celebrated with such perfect weather, 
with friendly gathering of her alumnae and with a lively, well-prepared 
Bazaar. The Birthday always marks the beginning of the end of another 
year, in which much has been accomplished and much more might 
have been! 

I speak for every one at the school as I mark the notable growth 
of many of the girls — and many of the grown-ups too! It is a joy to 
regard some of the tangible accomplishments, a fine student art exhibi- 
tion, a long honor roll, a revision of the stu- 
dent government, a successful Cynosure and 
Courant, excellent work in music and drama- 
tics; the list could fill this Bulletin. 



Qleettitad, 



We never know, however, which accomplish- 
ments are the needed ones, and so we do not 
always speak of the right ones, or even perceive 
them. The days are long past when it was agreed just what constituted 
a proper education for young ladies. Abbot was founded because some- 
thing else and new was needed for Andover girls. It is still developing 
for the same reason, although we reach out far beyond Andover for 
our students. The trouble — and the fearful responsibility — is to 
guess what kind of training we must give girls who are growing up in 
a world that seems so totally different from the one in which we found 
our experience. 

At the Alumnae meeting I told a story about an old Cape Codder 
who had sailed around and around the world but couldn't direct a 
stranger to a town six miles away because he'd "never had no call to go 
there". My point was that in education we so often believe we can 
suggest broad, universal experiences, but we do not really know what 
lies around the corner. We can only hope our girls will have learned 
how to use both their heads and their hearts when they meet whatever 
is around that corner! 

My continued thanks go to the Alumnae, near and far, who in any 
one of many ways, indicate their interest and belief in the school.

Class News 



1893 
Charlotte Conant Nicholls attended 
Alumnae Day with her daughter-in-law. 
She came from California where she had 
heen spending the winter. 

Elizabeth Nichols Bean, who has been 
Class Fund Secretary since the beginning 
of the Alumnae Fund, was unable to 
attend Alumnae Day. She leads an active 
life in Manchester, N.H. with many civic 
and philanthropic interests. 

1868 
Annie Smart Angus represented her 
class on Alumnae Day. 

ieoi 

Leila Fraser Gilbert writes, "I am hap- 
py, comfortable and well in the Retire- 
ment Community of the Sequoias. My son 
and daughter live only 50 miles away, and 
I still drive a car, so I can visit them at 
will. I have six grandchildren (3 married) 
and four great-grandchildren, so I feel 
like a matriarch." 

1903 

Nancy Holland Hubbard, the only mem- 
ber of the class of 1903, present on 
Alumnae Day, writes, "Can there be any- 
one left who would be interested in the 
career of Nancy Holland Hubbard, which 
in spite of its ups and downs, has never 
been dull. After leaving Abbot I studied 
at the New England Conservatory of 
Music to prepare for teaching music in 
the public schools. This I did, being 
supervisor of music in the Walpole, N.H. 
schools for two years. 

"At that time it seemed more important 
to me to marry Robert Arnold Hubbard, 
a Harvard graduate. We had a daughter, 
Linda Louise, a son, Cortlandt Van Dyke, 
also a graduate of Harvard, five grand- 
children, and two great-grandchildren. 

"The first three years of our married life 
were spent in Brookline where my hus- 
band was chemist for the Walker-Gordon 
Laboratory. While there I became a mem- 
ber of the Woman's Republican Club, 
and The Henry Francis Jewett Repertory 
Theater Club. After three years in Okla- 
homa, we settled in Newton Centre where 
I engaged in civic activities, and was 
chairman of the social committee of the 
Newton Centre Woman's Club and helped 
to found the Newton South Players Club, 
and acted in many of its plays. 



"Then we bought a home on Lakewood 
Rd., Newton Highlands. I became chair- 
man of the Dramatic Committee of the 
Woman's Club. Seven years later we mov- 
ed to Walpole, N.H. in order to be with 
my mother. Walpole was the home of my 
ancestors. My great-grandfather, Dr. Abra- 
ham Holland, graduated from Dartmouth 
in its seventh class in 1779 and came 
directly to Walpole, being the third 
physician since the town was founded. 
In 1819 his son Ephraim also built a 
house there which has always been oc- 
cupied by his direct descendants, and is 
my present home. Here, again, I took an 
active part in the affairs of the town, in 
the Unitarian Church, the Arts and Crafts 
Society and the Walpole Historical Soci- 
ety, being its first curator and its president 
for seven years. 

"Since the death of my husband in 
1943, I have closed my house winters 
and lived in Boston, California, Honolulu 
and for the greater part in Winter Park, 
Florida." 

The following letters were received for 
the "Paper Reunion": 

Edith Burnham Roberts — "It barely 
seems possible that sixty years have pass- 
ed since I was graduated from Abbot. 

"I imagine I have lived like the aver- 
age woman who has reached my age. I 
was happily married in 1911 to a grad- 
uate of MIT. He passed away in 1949. 
We had two children. The older one, 
John, is a chemical engineer with Du- 
Pont. He graduated from Dartmouth and 
received his Master's Degree from MIT. 
John is married and the father of two 
boys. My daughter, Elizabeth, is living 
with me and is an assistant librarian in 
the children's department of the Man- 
chester Public Library. 

"We have taken the usual trips and 
cruises and spent part of the time in 
Florida and California. 

"I am very much interested in all our 
civic affairs and belong to a number of 
patriotic societies and clubs. 

"I still drive my car and have spent 
my summers since my husband's death at 
Boothbay Harbor, Me." 

Grace Hind Andrews — "This my first 
letter to Abbot in these 60 years and there 
might be a few of the girls left who may 
be interested in hearing from me. 



[11] 



"We have 3 very grown-up married 
children and 6 grandchildren. As tor my 
activities of late years, I guess home duties 
have filled the days. Since last May I 
have heen getting back on my feet having 
had a severe and complicated fracture of 
the right hip. Almost 13 years ago I 
fractured my left hip so you see I have 
heen a little unfortunate in late years. 

"My husband, with whom I have been 
blessed to share the last 54 years, is still 
a practicing dentist. He is really remark- 
able and loves the profession. 

"The school Bulletin is always a wel- 
come piece of mail and of course the girls 
all look so young. I guess the dress styles 
in the gay nineties made us look older." 

Helen Packard McBride — "I have had 
to slow down awfully in the last two years, 
following a coronary and phlebitis, but 
am really very well. State Street Church 
is an important part of my life and I 
go quite regularly to my sewing club 
which has sewed for our Visiting Nurse 
Association since my high school days. 
Quite a record! 

"It has been a great pleasure in recent 
years to find Elizabeth Gilbert Dale's 
daughter. She is a delightful woman of 
whom Elizabeth would be so proud. 

"My family now consists of two nephews. 
Their children and grandchildren are a 
great joy and bring so much interest." 

Margaret Wilson Gerber — "Because 
this is the 60th anniversary of our class, 
I feel I should let my classmates know 
I am still 'up and coming' after over a 
year of trips two and three times a week 
to my eye doctor as I had two cataracts 
removed in February of last year. I still 
have to use a magnifying glass for small 
print. I have done nothing this last year 
but take care of myself, relaxing in our 
California sun and trying so hard not to 
be a burden to my family. I spent Christ- 
mas with my elder son who has three 
children and my younger son drove down 
from the north with his family, so I was a 
proud grandmother with my eight grand- 
children, five boys and three girls, rang- 
ing in ages from three to thirteen. 

"Greetings to all my classmates." 

1S06 

The class extends its sincere sympathy 
to Mary Jordan Goodrich whose husband. 
S., Carlisle Goodrich, died March 9, 1963, 
in Newburgh, N.Y. He was a leader in 
many community activities in Newburgh. 



1908 
Helen Hulbert Blague writes, "I am 
teaching French in the elementary schools 
in Springfield. After school I give voice 
lessons at home. Most of my outside 
activities consist of church duties. For 
a change 1 visit my daughters in Connec- 
ticut, New Jersey and Long Island. I 
have six grandchildren — lively ones." 

1909 

Louise Norpell Meek's son, James, was 
married in March. 

1913 
Reunion Report 

Eight members of the class of 1913 
gathered Friday evening, May 3rd, at the 
Andover home of Edith Kendall. Those 
present were Avis Tobey Johnson, Marga- 
ret Day Danforth, Mildred Bryant Kuss- 
maul, Margaret Wilkins, Helen Boyd Hig- 
gins, Mae Hussey, Helen Danforth Prud- 
den, and Edith Kendall. 

Mildred Bryant Kussmaul and her assist- 
ants, Peg Day Danforth and Edith Ken- 
dall, were responsible for the most bount- 
eous and delicious dinner of lobster and 
chicken (Mildred brought all the food, 
silver, glass and china from home). 

The table was gay with a lace table 
cloth over gold, a gold centerpiece of 
gilded galax leaf flowers, replete with 
favors and gifts of table mats of Maine 
photos, individual bottles of Rubinstein 
cosmetics, gold trimmed match boxes 
and preserved flower paper weights. Let- 
ters and telegrams with messages and 
news from the absent members were 
read and a brief memorial service for our 
deceased classmates was held. 

We stayed at the school on Friday night. 

On Saturday we proudly took our place, 
front row center in the chapel, for the 
alumnae meeting. Our feeling of vener- 
able accomplishment was somewhat dim- 
med by the presence of one member of 
the 70-year class. 

We were very much moved by the 
Seniors singing to us and the presentation 
by the Alumnae Association of gold 
friendship circle pins appropriately in- 
scribed on the back, "Abbot 1913-1963". 
We were very happy to present the Alum- 
nae Fund with $529. 

We were joined at luncheon by Mrs. 
Crane and Hazel Goodrich Waugh, after 
which we had our picture taken with our 
class baby, Carol Prudden Dinkle. 1935. 
We then attended the Bazaar on the 
Circle, held by the undergraduates.

It is good to know that our enthusiasm 
for our school is as real today as it was 
in 1913 and that, due to Abbot's growth 
and fulfillment through the years, our 
pride in her is even greater. 

Helen Danforth Prudden 

1914

cently.

two children, Marilyn, with two children

her daughter's home in Boynton Beach, 
Ela. It overlooks her daughter's patio and 
swimming pool. Grace has been very ill 



since October when she suffered a stroke. 
Her left leg was affected and, after 
several operations, ft was necessary to 
amputate the leg. She is now at home, and 
gets around very well in a wheelchair. 
Elizabeth Sjostrom and I drove to Delray 
Beach and had luncheon with her in the

girls who, Buzz hopes, will be future 
Abbotites. 

Jane Holt Atkinson and I called on 
Ruth Alley Rohrbach in Miami Shores. 
Both Ruth and Jane are bridge friends,

Sister Mary Anselm (Katharine Gage) 
writes, "A nun's news is not very interest- 
ing to the outside world, and that is why 
I seldom send any items. I am still assist- 
ant Superior at the convent. I help to 
edit our hi-monthly magazine, teach clas- 
ses in the novitiate, look after the lihrary 
of our associates, and take charge of the 
many church groups which visit us."

Reunion Chairman: Mrs. Frank C. 
d'Elseaux (Virginia Gay), 12 Sheffield 
Rd., Winchester, Mass. 

Here is some news I gleaned from your 
letters: 

Margaret Nivison Chase coiddn't come 
because the first week in May she is always 
involved in the Junior Choir Festival. 
She is still in music as cellist with Little 
Falls Symphony orchestra, Junior Choir 
director, choir singer, chamher music, 
organist, etc. as well as serving on var- 
ious hoards in Utica. 

Katherine Fox Smiley is still running 
Sterling Orchards where they sell their 
own fruit and have recently expanded 
their greenhouse. Her younger son has 
nearly finished the long road to being an 
architect, and daughter is married and has 
one girl and a boy. The older boy is 
married and lives nearby. Kay still does 
many of the things she did at school 
— write and sing — and learns a new 
trade every once in a while. Greenhouse 
management being the newest one. 

Betty Ryan Hill is still with the Federal 
Bureau of Public Roads. No. 1 son, Sherb, 
II, is out of the Army working in Albany 
and living at home. No. 2 son, Thomas, 
has a daughter, Terri-Jean, born June 3, 
1962, Daughter, Pamela, was married 
February 16, to Robert Lawrence Wood- 
side. 

Sue Ripley Ward is coming east in 
June when their son, Philip, aged 13, ex- 
pects to go to the Ted Williams baseball 
camp in Lakeville, Mass. He is aiming 
to be a major leaguer. Sue and her hus- 
band, Ted, are putting on the Verdi 
Requiem in three large performances. 
She is also performing in it as well as 
playing in a string quartet which has 
an ambitious program for next year. In 
their spare time they are do-it-yourself 
gardeners and house remodelers. Two 
years ago they went to Europe and are 
dreaming of more travel. In the meantime 
they love Colorado which includes such 
pleasures as swimming in a hot springs 
pool on Thanksgiving surrounded by 
snowy mountains. 

Sis Bartlett Hogue — Since February 
1962, Sis has been with Worth-While 
Florida Motels in Tampa. She is a broker, 
office manager and ad copy writer, and 
just loves it. Anyone want to buy a motel 
in Florida? Go see Sis. Both her children 
are married — Son, Steven, lives in Miami 
and is an accountant, taking courses at 
the University of Miami preparatory to 



becoming a C.P.A. Daughter, I'ai, lives in 
Tampa and has two daughters. She would 
love to see any "Yankees". 

Eleanor Bird is completing her 33rd 
year of public school teaching most ot 
which was done in Augusta, Maine. She 
became the principal of the school last 
year. Eleanor is a partner in the Cricket 
Shop in Damariscotta, Maine which she 
"modestly" says she thinks is a lovely 
shop with exclusive and interesting mer- 
chandise. This year they have added some 
clothes. She expects to be retired at the 
40th and will come. 

Theodora Talcotl Slater's daughter, 
Shirley, Abbot '58, Smith '62, is studying 
for M.A. in Art History at Columbia. 
She says the latch is out to any '28ers 
passing by and wanting a sandwich! 

Helen Leavitt Fisher and her husband 
are spending a year or so in Florida 
between pastorates. He is a minister and 
she was ordained a Congregational minis- 
ter in 1938 in her husband's first church 
in North Dakota after 4 years at Andover 
Newton Theological School where she re- 
ceived a B.D. Since then, she's done a 
great deal of preaching, supply work, a 
church of her own in Illinois, and two 
positions as Associate Pastor. Their son, 
Wilkin, P.A. '61, is now a sophomore at 
Columbia. Ten years ago they were in 
the Holy Land doing Archaeological work 
in Dhiban and Jericho. They returned 
last summer for a brief visit driving 
from Paris to Jerusalem in a Renault. 

Betty Jackson Kennedy celebrated her 
30th anniversary as social case worker on 
April 10, 1963. She spent almost 20 years 
with the Springfield Public Welfare then 
4 "shifts" ending at Great Barrington 
where they had "requested" a qualified 
social worker. She is working for her 
master's degree. Betty had hoped to come 
to reunion, but along with the human 
problems, she has taken on the animal 
kingdom of strays which respond as hu- 
mans to kindness and attention, so on 
May 4, they connot be properly cared for. 

Christine Bliss Billings couldn't come 
as she is just getting over pneumonia, and 
at the moment feeling at least 40 years 
out! Her son, John, 24, is in law school, 
and daughter, Linda, 22, will get her A.B. 
this year. 

Beatrice Lane Mercer is still in Florida, 
but she and Helen Leavitt Fisher did en- 
joy an Abbot luncheon at St. Petersburg 
with Miss Tucker this winter. On June 
25th they fly to Europe for a very glamor- 
ous sounding trip, during which hei 



[21 



husband will be playing golf with the 
American Senior team in Brussells and 
then in Deauville, France. Their family 
is all married, and they now have reached 
the travel era and are enjoying it. Bea

years ago and rides almost every day. 
Anyone going through west coast of Flori- 
da, do call — Dr. John C. Mercer, 2513 
57th St., Sarasota, Florida. 

Jo Paret Barrett says she can't get back 
and hasn't been back since '28 which is 
strange as it is one of her most favorite 
spots. Some day? Her husband retires 
from the Air Force this summer. Their 
son, Colin, 24, after 2 years at Amherst 
graduates from George Washington Uni- 
versity in June. Alison, their daughter, 
21, graduates from Oberlin also in June. 
Alison will wear cap and gown her father 
wore at Amherst in '30 and Jo at Smith 
in '33. Alison had 2 years of college in 
Germany before Oberlin and with this 
background has had several job offers as 
official interpreter. "Ma" is back at col- 
lege taking a writing course at G.W., 
piling up interested rejections. Otherwise, 
her interest is gardening just outside 
Washington. She reads all class news with 
interest and sends fond regards to every- 
one at reunion and everyone, not there. 
Fran Gould Parker was sorry not to be 
at reunion. She has 4 children. Oldest 
daughter is working at Best & Co. in 
White Plains; another daughter is a secre- 
tary in New York; oldest son a junior 
in high school and the youngest only 11. 
— No signs of marriages or grandchildren 
yet! 

Slop, Piper, Winnie and I had a grand 
t i me — wished more of you could have 
been here. Slop is still working at New 
Britain Gas Co. where she's been for 31 
years. Pipe's daughter was married a year 
and a half ago and now has a son 2 
months old. Her son is at Business School, 
not married but busy! Winnie lives at 
North Yarmouth Academy in a dorm 
with 33 boys and is the librarian. My 
daughter, Virginia, will be married June 
6. My other two daughters are already

you who said you'd come for the 40th. 
don't forget.

and fascinating old Danish house seems 
to have stepped out of a Hans Christian 
Andersen fairy tale — balconies, gold 
leaf, parquet, rose gardens, Rube Gold- 
berg plumbing and wiring, and the waters 
of the Oresund at our garden gate. Our

member of the jet-set, traveling around 
the country for Aeronutronic. Our ocean- 
ographers, Scott, 12 and Gregg, 8, can 
be found skin-diving or hunting speci- 
mens in tide pools whenever they can 
get to the beach. Gregg is also chief 
fisherman. The big news for Kim, 11, 
was being on Art Linkletter's TV House-

to keep up with the rest."

After attending the Alumnae Associa-

Schlosser and Pat Hamniond Duffy both 
had January babies (number five for Pat) 
so that they were not free to make the 
trek back to Andover. Sally Lunt Weather-

Ann Robinson Joyce sent her best from 
Somerset, and Bis Bisgood Galusha sent 
greetings from Toledo. 

We were disappointed that there were 
so few of us able to leave babies and 
husbands for the day; bu do let us hear 
from you. The fires of friendship must 
be constantly tended.

Pat Driscoll Vielehr writes, "Jerry and 
I, our three children, 2 dogs and 2 
Siamese arrived in India in varying stages 
for a two-year stay. Jerry is the Adminis- 
trative Officer for the Kanpur Indo-Ameri- 
can program, a joint U.S. -Indian effort 
to establish the Indian Institute of Tech- 
nology. The participating schools (small) 
are M. I. T., Princeton, Purdue, Ohio 
State, University of Michigan, and Cal. 
Tech. At present there are 10 American 
families in Kanpur with an expected 
total of 20 by next September. (We were 
mentioned in the January 5, 1963, New 
Yorker). I have found life in India a 
challenging and interesting experience, 
and it certainly makes one appreciate the 
United States more and more. We have 
established ourselves in an 'Indian-Colo- 
nial' house high on the banks of the 
Sacred Ganges River — there is a mag- 
nificent view from our verandah. I am 
very much enjoying servants and the lack 
of household cares. I spend more delight- 
ful hours with the family than ever 
before. Jerry and I hope to do some 
traveling sans children in this area before 
we return home. Our present plans are 
to move to Kashmir for the hot months. 



I hope that any Abbot adventurers 
will look us up and partake of bed and 
board."

Reunion Report 

Reunion Chairman: Mrs. Clifton A. 
Phalen (Julie Gaines) 22 Winthrop Rd., 
Hingham, Mass. 

Thirteen from our class arrived back for 
our Tenth, and I think I can say for all 
that it was well worth the travel time 
and babysitter expense involved for one 
or the other of us. The day was beautiful, 
temperatures reaching the high eighties, 
so the Bazaar was a big success and we 
were all able to walk around and see the 
changes on the campus. These are not 



[25] 



many: consisting of a new gym, the 
purchase of a house for students the 
other side of Baronial, and Sunset and 
Homestead changed to hold Alumnae 
headquarters and Music rooms respect- 
ively. 

We met in Abhot Hall in the morning 
tor the Alumnae Meeting where we were 
addressed by the head of the Alumnae 
Association, Mrs. Wood; the present Head- 
mistress, Mrs. Crane; Miss Sullivan; and 
the present Senior Class President and 
President of Student Government. The 
latter two told of the academic and social 
changes which had taken place in the 
past few years, and they were many and 
various. There are several advanced 
courses for seniors as well as Seminars, on 
the academic side; and socially restrictions 
have really been relaxed quite a bit. As 
a matter of fact, the campus looked co- 
educational by about two in the after- 
noon! 

We were all sorry that Miss Hearsey was 
not able to make it as she was on her way 
to Greece. Miss Tucker was also traveling, 
her terrain being in the area of Hong 
Kong. Miss Hancock was absent too, re- 
cuperating from an illness. But we were 
able to see Miss Friskin, Miss Ritchie, 
Mile. Barratte, Mile. Arosa, and, of course, 
Mr. Robb. 

After the Bazaar we gathered at Sun- 
set House for refreshments provided by 
Miss Sullivan. We also opened the box 
that we had hidden Senior year, remem- 
ber? If any of you want your treasures 
forwarded to you, let me know as I have 
them — but not for long as they are the 
mustiest smelling things and the box 
adds nothing to our decor!! We then 
adjourned to The Red Tavern in 
Methuen for a bit of relaxation and 
dinner after which the New Yorkers re- 
turned to Abbot for the night, and the 
rest of us wearily made our way home- 
ward. 

News gleaned from the postcards and 
letters returned from those both able 
and unable to attend the Reunion: 

Ruthie Sidon Fleischman, Karl and 
Karl, Jr. are living in Fairport, N.Y. 
near Karl's job with Eastman Kodak. He 
is in the International Advertising divi- 
sion which just afforded him a five week 
trip in Europe! Ruthie came back to 
Lawrence while he was away, but un- 
fortunately this did not coincide with 
the Abbot reunion so she was unable to 
make it. 

Nancy Edmonds Luce, Gordon and two 
children have been living in Belmont. 



Mass. while Gordon has been at Harvard 
Business School. They are moving to 
Westchester County, N.Y. in June so 
had hoped to get back to the Bazaar, 
but we never saw them so something 
must have come up to alter their plans. 

Janet Boivden and Audie Taylor Mac- 
Lean were both planning on attending 
our reunion, but they were never caught 
sight of either. Janet is in N.Y.C. work- 
ing for Reader's Digest Latin America, 
"finally making use of Miss Kaatz' Span- 
ish.' Audie is also in The City while her 
husband is studying to be a doctor. She 
is President of the Doctor's Wives Club 
there. 

Marty Schneider Unger is living in 
Tuscon, Arizona and doubts whether she 
will have a chance to get back East for 
quite awhile. Her husband says any 
change location will take them back over- 
seas or to San Francisco! 

Ann Kennedy Irish, Dave and their 
two girls Tracy, 3, and Susie, 1 1/2, are 
living in northern Michigan where Dave 
is in the boat business. They love their 
small town life with skiing ten minutes 
away in the winter and the beach in the 
summer. 

Sally Swayne Jennings and Ted are 
both studying and living in Madison, 
AVisconsin. Ted expects to get his Ph.D. 
in another two years, and Sally says she 
may have her M.A. by then, both of the 
degrees in English. 

Libby Hollister Smith had hoped to 
come back, but at the last minute de- 
cided her studies at Cornell needed some 
attention. She is going for a degree in 
Physics — while chasing a four year old 
as a side issue. 

Judy Wilcox Martin reported her new- 
est addition, William, born in January. 
Laurel Anne is now four, and Heather 
Lee is two. 

Dunster Pettit is back living in Wash- 
ington, D.C. after an extended vacation 
to Japan and area. 

Beverly Berkey Sipes found herself 
tending child number two, who appearel 
the middle of April, over May 4th, 
hampering any ideas of returning to 
Abbot. 

Diana Stevensen Brengel is living in 
Armonk, N.Y. "training 3 1/2 acres of 
jungle into a garden and incidentally 
preventing my 1 1/2 year old from pok- 
ing out the baby's eyes." 

Elaine Audi Macken is working with . 
her father in the furniture business. She 
is doing merchandising as well as interior ; 
design, and is a member of the National 



[26 



Society of Interior Designers. Her husband 
is resident in medicine at Roosevelt Hos- 
pital in New York. 

Ann Stoddard Saunders and Carol Har- 
din Kimball corresponded from overseas, 
Ann from Brazil and Carol from Nigeria. 
Ann and Wes love Rio where Wes is 
teaching English at the Brazilian Naval 
Academy. They have already been there 
a year and expect to continue on for 
another. They have a daughter, Caroline 
who is 3 1/2 and in a Brazilian Nursery 
School, and a son Hank born there last 
December. Carol and Geoff are presently 
moving to Lagos to a house Frannie 
Nolde Ladd and Peter vacated when they 
came back to the States in January. (They 
are now living down the street from us!!) 
Geoff is with Mobil Oil and should be 
in Nigeria for about another two years 
having already spent two there. They 
have a daughter, Jennifer, eight months 
old, and are spending some free time on 
correspondence courses. Carol hopes to 
get a good "Nanny" in Lagos so that 
she can leave Jennifer and work. 

There is loads more news from those of 
us who returned to Abbot, but I don't 
even know if Miss Sullivan will have 
enough room to print all of what I have 
gathered. We shall include remaining 
news in a later Bulletin. Thank all of 
you who responded, and especially the 
ones who sent a contribution in to the 
Alumnae Fund. There is still time for 
those of you who forgot or did not get 
the time. 

Our Chairman for the Fifteenth Re- 
union is going to be Dottie Giles Ham, 
and Muffy Grant Lynch has agreed to 
take over Bets' job as Class Fund Secre- 
tary.

ness Administration in June, 1962, and 
now have a job as Head of the Admission 
Office of the Harvard Medical School — a 
most pressured job, but great fun, too!"

recently saw Frankie Younsr Tang and 
Tody Bradley, and writes that both are 
fine. Jody is presently working at the 
Museum of Modern Art. 

Hope Hamilton Pettegrew and husband

land-y town." They moved out in October 
when Bob had the opportunity to become 
Advertising Promotion Manager for the

That's about it for this issue. Because 
the Bulletin will not be published again 
till October, let me take the opportunity 
to wish you all a fun summer. And — 
do let me hear about those summer vaca- 
tion plans, engagements, weddings, ad- 
vanced degrees, new babies or whatever. 
There's always a special welcome sign on 
our mailbox for such news. By the way 
— if you get a spare moment do read 
an article in the April issue of Harper's 
entitled "A Warm-Hearted Guide to Cer- 
tain Girls' Schools". Abbot is one of the 
five schools discussed and I think you'll 
find the piece both interesting and amus- 
ing.

Reunion Report 

BLAST OFF! 10:30 on the beautiful 
day of the 4th at the Abbot Circle. 16 of 
us witnessed a glorious and happy send- 
off of our 5th year rocket. Everyone was 
in high and cheerful spirit even though 
the thought of being away from Abbot 
for 5 years kept reminding us that we 
had become young ladies in this vast 
world of ours. 

Sue Moore, Ann Moulton and myself 
all stepped away from the big City for 
the week-end. Susie is working for an 
executive recruiting firm, Ann at the J. 
Walter Thompson Company, which by 
the way is located in the same building 
as Glamour, my home base. Carol Greene 
Donnelly looked happy as a lark since she 
is going to retire from the working 
world and become an American house- 
wife — can't blame her in the least! 
Joan Foedisch is working at the Bryn 
Mawr School of Social Work in Philadel- 
phia while Parry Ellice is teaching 2nd 
grade in New Jersey. Sibby and Judy Hart 
both are living in Boston; Sibby is work- 
ing for the Little, Brown and Company, 
Judy as a secretary at the Children's 
Hospital. We had 2 future brides amongst 
us who by the way were on Cloud No. 9 
. . . Steffie and Agi. Steffie is patiently 
selling insurance for Liberty Mutual 'til 
June 15 when she becomes Mrs. Roger 
Smith. They will live in Hanover next 
year while Roger finishes his last year 
at the Dartmouth Business School. Agi 
will walk to the altar on September 7th 
with James Rockwell of Boston, Mass.

Claudia Sandberg Wyllie and her hus-

Lucia Comas is living in Andover while 
attending Merrimack College. Mary 
O'Connor is teaching first grade in Haver- 
hill, Mass. and is also living at home in

darling as usual and seemed to be carry- 
ing out the life of a young married 
quite elegantly and happily. Bev Black 
looked divine after spending some months 
in Austria; she's planning on living with 
the rest of us career gals in NYC and 
can't wait to have a long chat with her 
soon. 

Must tell you all about opening of 
our treasure box that was so diligently 
buried by Mr. Butler — we went down 
into the basement of Draper Hall and 
all excitedly started fishing through our 
box after 5 years of being in the ground. 
After much confusion we discovered that 
it was not ours but the class of 1953's 
box — what a laugh. Guess we will 
have to wait for 1968 and then maybe 
all of us can be there! It was really 
great to see some of the '58 "swingers" 
again and talk over all the past five 
years; rest of you who couldn't make it 
do write and let us know what's happen- 
ing — marriages, babies . . . etc. . . . 
or maybe we are going to have the first 
woman President of US from our class. 
Happy and healthful summer to you 
all . . . love. De ke

HOW to separate the parts from the whole — or on the other hand 
how to see the forest for the trees — talents such as these must be 
employed daily and I am always newly conscious of them as I write 
to you, the Alumnae. I have to try very hard to view the forest, though 
I know so many handsome trees within it! 

I don't know all of you who responded last year to our call in 
numbers sufficient to win for us honorable mention in the U. S. Steel 
Foundation's competitive program for development of alumni support. 
I do know that Abbot was the only girls' school so honored, and I am 
proud and grateful to all of you who helped us achieve the distinction. 
The Class Fund secretaries who wrote such fine letters, and their class- 
mates who responded — all deserve Abbot's thanks. 

One stalwart tree in the whole forest of 
friends of Abbot is achieving a distinction 
of a particular kind, in addition to many 
he has already won. A ninetieth birthday is 
truly a marvel, and Abbot, from its own ad- 
vanced age of 135, gives particular greetings 
and felicitations to Mr. Flagg as he turns 
90 in November on the tenth. For the greater part of his life he has 
been a strong support to the school in many important ways and we 
are indeed grateful to him. 

Just as he is notable for looking as much to the future, as to the 
past, so must we be. The present is exciting; the girls now in school 
are as eager, as perplexed, as full of plans and hopes as you all were! 
We are growing still, taking advantage of new opportunities, presented 
in new spaces, new monies, new people. We are engaged just now in 
a survey of our present position, looking to see how we can do better 
things in the future. The Trustees have commissioned the firm of 
Cresap, McCormick and Paget to spend some time at the school, study- 
ing our particular procedures and methods, in all areas except the spe- 
cifically academic. We shall undoubtedly learn of many ways in which we 
can improve our performance! This sounds familiar, I'm sure, to alum- 
nae who must remember times when, as students, they were told by 
Abbot how they could improve theirs! I hope that the school will show 
as good results! 



With all my best wishes to the forest, 

I? II (

Jane Brodie Carpenter 

November 4, 1871 — August 31, 1963 

For Jane Carpenter, Abbot Academy, her alumnae, and their life 
histories, were an almost life-long absorbing and devoted interest. The 
Alumnae Office and Jane were synonymous terms. From the time in 
1909, when she was appointed Keeper of the Alumnae Records, she 
began searching for material for the first Alumnae Register. Her zeal 
and insistence on absolute accuracy in dates and facts made these early 
records models for all succeeding registers to follow. 

In 1923 she became editor of the Alumnae Bulletin issued four 
times yearly, and sent to all alumnae. In this direct way alumnae 
were kept informed of school activities and themselves. Into this she 
wove much historical data making the issues priceless records. 

In 1928 the Alumnae Office was opened in Abbot Hall, and the 
files were moved from her home and preparation began for the Centen- 
nial celebration in 1929. 

Miss Bailey wrote the following after the Centennial, "The develop- 
ment of the Alumnae Association with its far-flung Abbot Clubs, the 
Bulletin, the Loyalty Fund, and finally the Centennial Celebration are 
all absolutely dependent not only upon the patiently accumulated data 
with which the alumnae office is filled, but upon the wisdom, tact, and 
far-sightedness with which alumnae affairs have been administered . . . 
How she ever kept her head clear with all the demands upon her, it's 
hard to understand." 

Never in rugged health, of a sensitive quiet nature, she made the 
office a pioneer in alumnae relationships, to be followed by other schools. 
Miss Jane retired in 1936. 

Her crowning achievement was the publication in 1959 of her book, 
Abbot and Miss Bailey, a meticulous record of Miss Bailey's twenty- 
three years' administration. To this was added important historical data. 
She was ably assisted in this monumental work by her sister, Miriam F. 
Carpenter. 

Those who have had the privilege of working with her through the 
years are grateful for the inspiration of her gentle spirit. 

Her work is a continuing living memorial; her memory will be 
cherished by all who have known and loved her. 

Constance Parker Chipman, 1906 
Alumnae Secretary Emerita 



Since Miss Carpenter's death, a number of gifts have been 
received in her memory.

Faculty Facts 



The many Abbot alumnae whom Mr. Raymond Coon has taught 
during the sum of twenty-three years as a member of the Music Depart- 
ment will want to know that he retired in June, to the great regret of 
his students and his colleagues. As teacher of piano, organ, music theory 
classes, and recitalist, Mr. Coon brought to us a highly trained and de- 
veloped talent, deeply-founded musicianship, and high standards of 
performance. He was an important member of the department which 
maintained and increased the reputation of Abbot as outstanding in 
Music instruction and opportunity. He continues to teach privately and 
he has now answered the call of Christ Church, Andover to be interim 
organist and choirmaster. He is much missed at the school, and our 
warmest good wishes are with him and Mrs. Coon. 

We regret to report that several faculty members have not returned 
this year. Miss Margaret Howland of the Art and History Department 
is Director of Studies at the Beard School. Mrs. Janice Fukushima of 
the English Department is doing graduate work at Harvard. Miss Erika 
Niemann, an exchange teacher, has returned to the Droste Hulshoff 
School in West Berlin. Mrs. Dorothy Potter, Director of Residence, 
is now at Miss Hall's School. Mrs. John Sisson, head of the English 
Department, Mrs. George McKinley of the Science Department, and 
Mrs. Thomas Rees of the History Department, have given up teaching 
and are devoting their time to their families. 

There are several new faculty members. Mrs. Eldon Mayer is the 
new Director of Residence. Mrs. Mayer attended the Bouve-Boston 
School of Physical Education. She has been for several years Director 
of Residence at Wayland Academy in Wisconsin. 

Miss Laurie Smith, Abbot '59, a Wellesley graduate, is teaching 
History of Art and Physical Education. She is also Curator of the 
John Esther Art Gallery. 

Miss Elizabeth Nields who is teaching English received her A.B. 
degree from Radcliffe and has taken courses at Boston University and 
the Boston Museum School. 

Miss Jean St. Pierre has also joined the English Department. She 
received her A.B. degree from Wheaton and an M.A. from Columbia 
University. She recently taught at the Lenox School in New York. 

Mrs. John D. Bennett, a graduate of Pembroke College and a 
recent teacher at the Pike School in Andover, is teaching Geometry 
and Algebra. 

Mrs. John Harrington, who graduated from the University of Vienna 
and has done graduate work at Wellesley College, is teaching History 
and German. 

Miss Barbara Keener, a graduate of Gordon College, is teaching- 
Science and assisting in Physical Education. 

Mrs. Barbara M. Quinlan is assisting in the Library. She is a 
graduate of Whitman College and has taken courses at the University 
of Hawaii.

Alumnae Incentive Award 

We are delighted to report that Abbot received Honorable Mention 
for Improvement in Alumnae Support in the 1963 Alumni Giving In- 
centive Award Competition. A $125 cash award was presented to the 
school at the American Alumni Council Conference in July. Competing 
with nearly 200 schools comprising the Secondary School membership of 
the American Alumni Council, Abbot was the only girls school to receive 
an award. 

We are most grateful to the U.S. Steel Company and to each of you 
who made it possible for Abbot to receive this award. The donors, the 
class fund secretaries, and the area representatives were the key to 
our success.

1957 

Hi Fellow 57'ers! 

Where has the summer gone! It seems 
impossible that it is already time for the 
fall issue of the Bulletin. Though I have 
heard from very few of you during the 
summer months (ahem) I hope you all 
had as enjoyable a one as we did. A 
month's vacation enabled us to spend two 
glorious, exciting weeks in California, and 
the remainder as "beach bums" at the 
Delaware shore. 

W T hile on the West Coast we spent 
several days in the Palo Alto area so 
eagerly anticipated spending an evening 
with Nance Davison Miller and her hus- 
band. However, our plans had to be 
postponed since that was the time Cathey, 
Nance's new baby, chose to arrive! Mother, 
Father and baby are all doing well and 
have recently moved to a new home in 
Cupertino which is about twenty-five 
minutes from Palo Alto. Nance's new 
address is: 

10397 A Meadow Place 
Cupertino, California 

It was especially good to hear from 
Debbie Smith Regan — one of those 
"among the missing" in past Bulletin 
issues. Debbie writes: "After graduating 
from Bryn Mawr, I worked for Bell 
Telephone Laboratories for six months, 
then married a tall midwesterner and 
moved to California. We're both in bank- 
ing — Jay in loans and I'm in charge of 
our 1410 computer staff." 

Jacquie Goodspeed has a most exciting 
job working for Attorney General Brooke 
of Massachusetts. Jacquie writes that no 
two days are alike and adds, "I have 
even received phone calls for Attorney 
Goodspeed!" Her vacations sound equally 
exciting as she spent a week in St. 
Thomas and then in August was in 
California. This Fall, Jacquie and Judy 
Botnick have begun sharing an apart- 
ment in Boston. Judy spent the summer 
in Marblehead sunning and sailing, and 
also returned to Binghamton for her 
brother Dick's wedding. Jacquie and 
Judy's address Is: 

67 Hancock Street 
Boston, Massachusetts 

Louisa Lehmann Birch and her hus- 
band have moved to Cambridge where 
David is studying for his doctorate at 
Harvard Business School this year. 

Joan Pelletier Isabel's husband, Dick, 
received his M.B.A. in International 
Business from Indiana University last

22, 1963 in Salem, Mass. Daniel is a grad- 
uate of Haverford College and Harvard 
School of Education. He is teaching at 
Browne and Nichols School in Cambridge. 

Paula Slifer Zandstra's husband, Judd, 
is working as a Systems Analyst for Whirl- 
pool Corporation in St. Paul. He re- 
ceived his Master's degree in Business 
Administration from the University of 
Michigan last June. Their first cherub, 
Michael Paul, was born August 2, 1963. 

Lulu Sulzbacher Cutler had her first, 
a son, James Westford, III, on August 
4. He is "sooo cute."! 

Pat Brennan Kfoury had a son, Christo- 
pher Stephen, September 29, 1963. 

That's about it for this issue except

Isabel Maxwell Hancock died January 14, 1964, in Lynchburg, Va. 

Miss Hancock was a graduate of Hollins, and received a Master 
of Arts in Teaching from Radcliffe. She also studied at Harvard and 
the University of London. In 1936 she became a teacher of Mathematics 
at Abbot; since 1955 she has been Director of Admissions. 

A memorial service was held for Miss Hancock at Abbot on Sunday, 
February 16. 

The Board of Trustees has established the Isabel Hancock Memorial 
Scholarship Fund. If you wish to send a remembrance, make check 
payable to the Trustees of Abbot Academy.

The following tributes were spoken by Mrs. Alexander Crane and 
Miss Marguerite C. Hearsey: 

"In the bewildering days when I first came to teach at Abbot, when 
I was meeting one stranger after another, the first of my colleagues 
who came clearly into focus was Isabel Hancock. She had just returned 
from the summer in England that she had spent studying architecture, 
and her memories were shining ones. Though she was besieged with 
questions, she took time to build a small strong bridge between herself 
and me, in just the way that she did with her new students and with 
each visitor who came to the door marked 'Admissions Office'. 

"For each family who came, she embodied a gracious and graceful 
welcome; in each parent she inspired confidence, and of each candidate 
she made a friend. The students in the school came eagerly to help her 
show the school, and if every one was busy, Miss Hancock cheerfully 
set out to guide the visitors herself. Nearly all of you here met Abbot 
first in the person of Miss Hancock and I hope you will always see it 
through her eyes; for she saxv clearly but she looked for the best and 
she always found it. If the best was obscured by some slight defect, she 
corrected this, if she could, with great tact and sweetness — and those 
whom she corrected stood taller than before. I do not remember ever 
hearing her say a harsh word about anyone or criticizing one person 
to another. Yet her judgments were based firmly on unwavering stand- 
ards. Her greatest joy, I believe, was in seeing someone else succeed, 
perhaps after a false start or initial failure. 

"For her friendship, for her devotion to Abbot and for the ideals 
she set for us, we can be profoundly thankful." 

M.H.C. 



"When we heard that on January 14th Isabel Hancock had died all 
who knew her felt that a light had gone out. She shed a quiet radiance 
among us. We know only now perhaps how we depended on it. 

"Since her death the phrase 'every virtue, every grace' has recurred 
constantly in my mind. One hardly knows which quality was pre- 
dominant. Virtue in the sense of moral strength, and grace were so in- 
termingled in her character that each enriched the other. 

"Isabel Hancock, a gentle Virginian, had something of the rock- 
ribbed New England strength. Duty was not a word from which she 
drew back. In all my years of association with her as a colleague she 
readily assumed any responsibility that was given her, and never failed 
to perform with effectiveness the accepted task. Fler clear, creative mind 
was directed eagerly to each new demand. 

"This sounds too impersonal, and impersonal is a word that could 
never be used to describe Isabel Hancock. Disinterested, yes, for her 
concern was never self-centered. The quality of Abbot as a school was 
her concern, but the school for her was individual people — the girls, 
the faculty, the whole staff. Busy as she was, especially so in recent years, 

[5] 



as Director of Admissions, she never seemed too hurried in her gracious 
meeting either of strangers or friends. The pressure of work never 
caused her to put mechanics before people. 

"As Director of Admissions she was meticulous in obtaining every 
detail about the qualifications of applicants that would be helpful in 
making the decision as to the candidate's admission to Abbot. Her records 
were not only kept with objective accuracy but interpreted with imagina- 
tion and understanding. In no school, I am sure, was the selection of 
students made more fairly, and in no school I am sure were those who 
could not be accepted told so with more kindness. Those who were ad- 
mitted will remember with what a warm reception Miss Hancock met 
them on their arrival, often with flowers in their rooms and a little 
note of welcome. 

"Though in the last few years the number of applicants made it 
impossible for Miss Hancock to do any teaching, the girls who through 
twenty-five years were her pupils recall gratefully her clear, interesting 
presentation of her subject. Because of her enthusiasm for mathematics, 
she was indefatigable in her efforts to make the subject clear to even 
the most unmathematical mind. She devoted uncounted extra hours to 
conferences formal and informal. Her door was always open to the girls. 
In her sitting room in Draper Hall, where she lived for many years on 
the 'second floor front' they found not only a teacher to help them with 
the understanding of difficult equations and theorems, but a friend, a 
hostess for little parties where fun and music and food were happily 
mingled. 

"Some of her students and all of her friends knew of her interest 
in other fields than mathematics. She found time for music, for theatre, 
and for travel. Her knowledge of mathematics led her to a special 
appreciation of architecture in her travels, and primarily to her avoca- 
tion of astronomy — an avocation which she often shared with her stu- 
dents through visits to our observatory and extra-curriculum instruction. 

"We recall, all of us who knew her will recall over and over again 
through the years the quality of her life among us — her unfailing 
courtesy, her unperturbed composure under any strain, her considera- 
tion for others, her hospitality, her love of beauty and in dark and 
painful days her courage and persistent hope. Having built her life into 
the life of Abbot for over a quarter of a century, Isabel Hancock cannot 
die. 'Every virtue, every grace' of that life will find expression in the 
on-going daily life here, and in the lives of countless students and 
friends."

By earth unbound.

"Doctor, Lawyer . . .?" 

Nancy Eastham, 1955 

Nine years ago, when I was a senior at Abbot, my plans lor the 
future were reasonably clear: I hoped to go to Mount Holyoke College, 
major in chemistry, and continue on to medical school. Accordingly, 
the following September I packed my bags for South Hadley, and 
tackled my first college chemistry course. At the end of the year, how- 
ever, my Bunsen burner and I said our fond but determined farewells; 
and I ultimately chose zoology as a major. I very much enjoyed my work 
with dogfish, cats, and microscopes, but the summer after junior year 
brought home two important points to me: first, from working in a 
hospital laboratory, I learned that I was not really suited to the medical 
profession; second, from talking with an enthusiastic woman lawyer 
from California whom I met at field hockey camp, I realized that the 
legal profession was very much open to women and might be just what 
I wanted. When I returned to college, I therefore applied to Harvard 
Law School. A research thesis in zoology was my major academic task, 
which proved to be invaluable experience; but I found myself too short- 
sighted to appreciate scientific research, and I suspected that I should 
prefer dealing with human beings as social entities. Although I in- 
terviewed for a research position, when the Law School accepted me, 
I decided upon that course. 

The first few days at Harvard were somewhat terrifying. For the 
first time in eight years, I was no longer in an all-female institution; 
in our class of about 500 students, only about 23 were female. Moreover, 
there seemed a tremendous amount of work to do. And, most frightening 
of all, each class consisted of questions, connected with cases we had 
read, directed by the professor to individual students, whose names he 
found on the convenient seating chart before him; in the three years 
I never did overcome my fear of being called upon to answer some more 
or less obscure question (although some other students seemed positively 
to enjoy talking in class). After the initial strangeness, however, the 
first year was fascinating and probably the most valuable of the three, 
since in that year we supposedly learned to think as lawyers. Each of us 
argued two mock appeals, a practice which added greatly to our under- 
standing of how a lawyer goes about his work. At the end of the year 
came the dreaded examinations, which consisted mainly in fact situa- 
tions involving several preferably complicated legal issues which were to 
be extracted and discussed as fully as possible in two to four hours. 
Although the pressure at exam time is intense, since the grade for 

[7 1 



each course depends entirely on the result of the one examination at 
the end of it, very few students actually fail; thus most of us were 
together again the next fall. 

During my second and third years my attention was somewhat di- 
verted from the course work by other things. I was given the opportunity 
to work as an editor of the Harvard Law Review, a legal periodical 
published eight times annually by about fifty-eight students at the Law 
School without direct faculty supervision. We were expected to work 
forty-eight hours per week on the Review, which left little time for 
classes and preparation; but the work itself — a combination of writing, 
editing, and preparing material for the press — was enough of a sup- 
plementary education so that we all made it through our exams, generally 
without a significant drop in academic average and with a great deal 
more law under our belts. A number of students also assist professors 
in the preparation of articles or books. During my last two years, I 
gathered some interesting experience in this way, helping one professor 
edit a series of essays on Japanese law, and doing preliminary research 
for another professor who was working on a case in the International 
Court of Justice. A further "extra," which takes little time but from 
which one can learn a great deal, is judging the mock appeals for the 
first-year students. Here one acts the dual role of judge and teacher — 
weighing the legal points made in the briefs and oral arguments, and 
criticizing the work of the "counsel" both as to content and presentation. 

It is quite common for law students to work in law firms during 
the summer between their second and third years. My work on the In- 
ternational Court of Justice case led to a job in a firm in New York 
City; I had great fun describing myself as a Wall Street lawyer, from 
the location of the firm, but in fact I did very little real "Wall Street" 
work but rather was involved in research for the beginnings of a 
book. Nevertheless, just being in a law office gives one some idea of what 
goes on in the world of the practitioner. 

The third-year student quickly learns his (or her) way to the Law 
School Placement Office. Several firms from all over the country send 
representatives to the school to talk to students, some of whom are then 
invited to visit the firms for a final evaluation by their members. 
Probably the majority of students will begin their careers after grad- 
uation by joining an established law firm as an associate, but there 
are many other possibilities as well. Some students work for govern- 
ment agencies or private companies; some start right in teaching; others 
clerk for a judge for a year (the United States Supreme Court clerk- 
ships are the most coveted positions); some travel for a year on the 
Sheldon Travelling Fellowship from Harvard; and may face military 



service (one instance where being female is an asset!). A further pos- 
sibility is to continue studying, particularly abroad, on one of the several 
available fellowships; this was my choice. Thus I came to Cambridge 
University, England, to write a thesis for a Diploma in International 
Law. 

The year and a half here at Cambridge have been very interesting 
and rewarding. Not only have I learned a great deal of international 
law, but I have had the chance to live in an environment quite different 
from that at home. By this "environment" I do not mean simply the 
different sort of life one has, riding bicycles on the wrong side of the 
road and wrestling with coal fires, but also the different way of thought 
one finds in a foreign country — even in a nation as closely linked 
with our own as England. Moreover, as a foreign student, particularly 
studying international law, one tends to meet and make friends with 
other foreign students; thus one learns about many other peoples as well. 

Although nine years of college and university education may seem 
endless to the Abbot senior, they have passed very quickly. Despite my 
rather late espousal of law as a goal, I am happily and firmly set on 
going into practice in the fall. In closing this brief sketch, I should 
like to emphasize four things for the girl who is undecided as to what 
she should do. First, the study of law is an exciting and challenging 
task. Second, one can usually enter this study from nearly any college 
major and without taking any particular courses. Third, legal educa- 
tion and the legal profession in general are becoming more and more 
open to women, who are now able to attend the best law schools and 
work in excellent law firms. Fourth, any girl who has taken full ad- 
vantage of the excellent grounding which is offered at Abbot, who has 
conscientiously built on this at college, and who thrives on concise 
analysis can certainly enjoy and be very successful in law school, and 
thereafter continue into a most worthwhile career.

Virginia Powel 
Instructor in Studio Art 

Is Art a luxury or is it a necessity? This is an old question weighed 
almost inevitably each year by educators. Since continuous inquiry 
never produces an exact formula or definition there are always many 
answers to the question. 

Most art teachers want the recognition of art training considered 
as important an ingredient of the educated person as the knowledge 
of academic subjects. There is the time proven answer to the question 
of the importance of art — it gives greater awareness and ability of 
expression to any student. There is always the realization that the 
art studio is one place where students can delve into ideas, dreams, 
and emotions not so readily encountered in the formal classrooms. 

It is probable that courses at the secondary level can only serve as 
an introduction to a more frequent use of imagination and to a real 
appreciation of art. Talented girls may practice their talent, explore 
new media, and uncover their own capabilities — all girls can ex- 
perience new discoveries of what they can do despite any limitations 
of skill. 

But let us consider students growing as people who have some of 
the personality failings we all find within ourselves. There is the person 
who is haunted by perfectionism, stopped in her tracks, and unable to 
reach her own high standards. There is the person who is content with 
half-way achievements and who does not know that they are half-way. 
There is the person who has not the confidence to make a direct state- 
ment. There is the self-conscious person who is unable to get outside 
of herself and into the problem at hand. There is the person w 7 ho is 
unwilling to try unless it is fun. Surely all of us can recognize at least 
one of these failings within ourselves. Certainly each of us remembers 
at least one lesson unlearned because of that failing. 

It is the attempt of the art classes to help people eliminate per- 
sonality stumbling blocks. If people can experience victories over 
themselves, achievement becomes pleasure, expression of an idea pro- 
duces great excitement, and self-imposed blinders are removed from the 
eyes. The ordinary can become extraordinary. 

Why is the Art Studio peculiarly equipped for more than the 
daubing of paints and materials? It is the matter of sight and of the 
other senses. People can deal with things that can be seen, felt, and 
sensed. The results of learning are tangible at all stages. Mistakes 
become great teachers, easy for students to comprehend. The mere 
business of conceiving an idea, planning its execution, and finishing it 
is all right there, right now. In addition, the critical analysis of the stu- 

[ 10] 



dents' own work and that of others helps them to see whether they have 
succeeded. There are always stimulating companions and the friendly 
exchange of ideas. 

Just what would be the best way lo describe a learning process in 
the Art Studio at Abbot? Consider what the Abbot girls do after they 
have climbed four flights in Draper Hall and have arrived in the upper 
rooms, all surrounded by sky. They compose. 

Composition is an old subject. It has long been taught, but it can 
never go out of fashion. The principles remain the same through all 
ages, only the style and materials change. To compose with sensitivity 
and wisdom, a student must be able to work within the limitations of a 
given area whether it be the boundaries of a piece of paper or the height 

and weight of a stone. That student must use her material pencil, 

charcoal, paint, clay, wood, or stone — to its best advantage and she 
must synchronize all the small parts with each other and with the whole. 

In the Abbot Art Classes many students are "stumped" by that 
seemingly simple art of composing. With great enthusiasm girls begin 
to create a design, but quite often they cannot visualize beforehand or 
fill in later all the empty areas around the first idea. Maybe one particular 
girl is unable to conceive the composition as a whole because she feels 
unable to draw it perfectly. Another student may be content to go only 
half-way without the trouble of finishing. Another may not have the 
confidence to make a definite design of the empty spaces around the 
safe subject matter. A fourth girl may be too self-conscious, and yet 
another may stop after the fun of beginning is over and the thinking 
begins. To put it simply, in all of these cases the composition is not 
yet a composition. 




[ 11 ] 



Usually students are able to push themselves further and overcome 
hurdles. When they do work out a problem of design to its completion, 
there can be little doubt that their general working habits are being 
affected. If consideration of the problem as a whole and not as a mass 
of disorganized details becomes a habit in art, it stands to reason 
that there will be a carry-over of this attitude in other more formal 
studies. Even in the understanding of some of the principles of art one 
must refer to music and poetry and in addition must consider science. 

In line with this strengthening of the students' study attitudes, 
Phillips Academy has been conducting a course of Visual Perception, 
not made to train artists in skill but to develop the practice of more 
sensitive judgments. This year Abbot Academy has offered a pilot course 
similar to that of Phillips. Eight seniors have devoted 3 class periods a 
week to studio work and to lectures, discussions, and slide viewing. 

The course may be defined as the training of the eye and mind in 
the intellectual and intuitive judgment of things in relation to each 
other. To develop greater comprehension, there are several disciplined 
exercises which make use of simple but varied materials. For example, 
there is the problem of arranging black cut-outs on white paper to 
attain perfect balance of the figure and background, and there is the 
problem of forming a 3D shape out of drinking straws and glue. These 
exercises and others are all aimed to produce compositions with the 
relationship of objects to the space around them. The goal is always the 
same — to sharpen the students' awareness, not only of the problem 
met in the Art Studio and evaluated and analyzed in the lecture room, 
but of the like or unlike lines, shapes, patterns of situations around. 
Whatever is learned is learned by the individual's actual doing and 
alert consciousness of what is 
happening visually. It is 
rather what might be called 
"instant learning" in that 
what is before the eyes is 
there to be seen and appre- 
ciated rather than realized in 
verbal terms. 

So far the course in Visual 
Perception has been success- 
ful here. Satisfaction of 
achievement has been the 
pleasure of the 8 seniors. This 
course does not necessarily 
produce artists — the ad- 
vantages of having gone 
through the exercise series 
may simply become a part of 
the student's whole being.

Marjory Clark Barker writes, " I live 
alone in a big old house in the country 
in Michigan City, Ind. I am my own cook 
and housekeeper — a gardener of sorts and 
a forest conservationist — this last means 
a furnace burning logs and soft coal. I 
take great pleasure in driving my own 
car — a Thunderbird, in which I travel 
hither and yon, one thousand miles a 
month. Unlike many human beings I live, 
my absorbing interest is in the lives and 
problems of others." 

1909 

Reunion Co-Chairmen — Janet Gorton, 
87 West Cedar St., Boston, Mass., and

Marjorie Soule Byers writes, "I left

friends, Estelle Dewitt Weston who has 
since died, Mabel Rhodes Manter, and 
Elizabeth Fuller. On my way home 1 
visited Corinne Willard Dresser in De- 
troit and my daughter in Upper Michi- 
gan. My fifth grandchild and third grand- 
son was born August 13. I have sold my 
house and moved into an apartment in 
Denver.

Reunion Chairman — Miss Alice C. 
Sweeney, 35 School St., Andover, Mass. 

"Call it what you like, an incredible 
possibility, a startling thought or a long- 
awaited moment, but face squarely the 
fact that the time has come for the Class 
of 1914 to have its 50th reunion. Plan 
TO COME. 

"The date is May 9, the place, Abbot 
Academy. Sociability and comfortability 
await you.

The class extends its sympathy to 
Elizabeth Brigham Roth whose husband 
died September 18, 1963. 

Bertha Wessell was a guest at a testi- 
monial upon her retirement after 45 
years of service with the Bay State 
Merchants Bank in Lawrence.

In 1915's class prophecy a Leach book 
was predicted — and now it's out! 
"Boston In My Blood" by Betty Frye 
Leach, a book of light verse, is already 
on the shelves of The Boston Public 
Library (bought for its Nova Anglica 
Collection), The Somerset Club Library, 
The Athenaeum Library, The Massachu- 
setts Bar Association Library and others. 
In a review of two full pages, with four 
special illustrations, the January issue of 
BOSTON Magazine says: — 
"A Bostonian's Boston is a personal 
affair, and in few books is this more 
apparent than in Betty Frye Leach's 
. . . 'Boston in My Blood'. To her 
the city is one of never-ending de- 
light . . . her verse illustrates the 
contention that a Bostonian's Boston 
is so very much his own that he may 
with impunity smile at both its fables 
and foibles." 

Elizabeth is her own Grandma Moses 
in the fifteen pen and ink drawings that 
slyly point up the fifteen groups of verse, 
according to BOSTON, "under such 
alluring headings" as "Of Ancestors, Of 
Beacon Hill, Of Boston Bachelors, Of 
Colleges, Clubs, Newspapers" and so on. 
One of the latter group deals with 
"Monitor" readers and an editor of that 
paper who saw it and read the volume 
noted cheerfully that the book "deflated 
a considerable amount of Boston stuffi- 
ness; an admirable objective." Whether or 
not he is correct, Elizabeth seems to have 
pulled no punches in her 67 page volume 
which proves that in due time class 



f 16] 



prophecies are fulfilled. A few of the 
rhymes were concocted by Catty Leach 
to round out the Boston picture here and 
there. 

Although it has been placed in various 
bookshops, Elizabeth was most pleased 
that it was at once accepted by the 
oldest continuous bookshop in the coun- 
try, The Brattle Bookshop on Cornhill. 

Editors Note — Abbot is proud to have 
this book in the library. 

Another Leach Sister activity this year 
was a round trip flight to California, 
where they visited relatives and friends 
in Oakland, Santa Barbara, Berkeley, and 
the San Francisco area in general, falling 
in love with the latter city.

"In a few days you will receive letters

Jane Linn Gale writes, "We have just 
celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary

son is in the Air Force and is stationed 
at Wright Patterson Base in Dayton, Ohio. 
Our eldest daughter is a senior at Smith, 
our second daughter is a freshman at 
Northwestern, and our youngest daughter

Alumnae Council in November. Hope to 
see Kay Dutton Leidy there in June, as 
her daughter Roseanne, and our daughter, 
Lynn will be graduating." 

1931 

Mary Bacon writes, "I had a wonderful 
vacation in Italy. It was most unusual in 
a lot of ways. In Rome I was fortunate 
enough to be invited to dinner with an 
Italian family in their home, a Bishop 
attending the Council took us to dinner, 
and I saw my current 'adopted daughter.' 
She is darling. She and her mother came 



[17] 



to Rome from the little village where 
they live. It was the first time for both 
of them, and it's hard to say who was 
more thrilled. They were both terrified 
of the traffic — but so was I! From Rome 
I went to Florence. One morning I was 
caught in a mob of construction workers 
striking for higher wages. Before I could 
extricate myself, I was grabbed by both 
arms and marched through the streets. 
I wonder why it seemed funny there — if 
such a thing had happened here I would 
have been scared to death. Luckily I did 
not know that the day before there had 
been a similar demonstration in Rome, 
and one or two had been killed and 
several injured. Finally the boys let go 
of my arm (the better to wave theirs), 
and I made a dash for it and took refuge 
in a cafe from which I watched the police 
break up the demonstration." 

Harriet Gregory Asmussen writes, "I 
have lived in Denmark for over two years 
with my three youngest children, Peter, 
16, Chris, 13, and Wendy, 12. My two 
oldest daughters are married and live in 
Connecticut. I have 3 grandchildren. 1 
would love to see any Abbot girls who 
come to Denmark. The Danish climate 
is similar to New England, and when we 
don't have rain it is lovely. The language 
is very hard to learn." 

Address: Mrs. Wahl Asmussen, Jagtveg,

"Betsy Waskowitz Rider was a uniquely 
gifted and talented member of the Class 
of 1952. Her death in November is a 
cruel shock. But nothing can destroy the 
memory of a lively, bright, disciplined 
and self-assured girl who grew from child 
to graceful young woman during her four 
years at Abbot. Betsy had a certain 
Midas touch — she excelled in so many 
of the things she turned her attention 
to. Whereas most of us were hard pressed 
to qualify for the Abbot Dramatic Society, 
or a varsity team, or Fidelio, choir, year- 
book staff, honors, the A Society, Betsy 
left us quite breathless as she proved 
herself in one after another of these and 
more. I cannot think of Abbot without 
remembering her. She was an outstand- 
ing companion and personified much of 
what I think Abbot stands for. 

"I wonder if we could establish a 
memorial at Abbot in Betsy's name in 



the form of a scholarship or some useful 
and attractive permanent gift which 
woidd reflect one of Betsy's interests."

Reunion Chairman — Gale Barton, G 

Brimmer St., Boston, Mass. 

Do you suffer from nagging backache? 

Are you smoking it more and enjoying 
it less? 

Do you spend sleepless nights? 

Have you wondered where the last five 
years have flown? 

Are you curious about your classmates? 

Are you dying to see your roommate, 
anxious to hear about her wedding, 
equally anxious to relate your own joys 
and plans? 

Arc you an independent city girl caught 
in the rush of the working day, and 
interested in comparing notes on 
worldly experience and travel? 

Are you associated with higher learning, 
one interested in education and its sup- 
port? 

Or are you one who remembers with 
Avarmth the Abbot walks, early morn- 
ing chapel services, those CP's and GC's? 
Honest answers to the above questions 

should convince all members of the class 

of '59 that 

the 

Abbot Fifth Reunion 

on May 9, 1964 is one event 

not to be missed. 

In all seriousness consider, plan, and 
then come back to Abbot on May 9 for 
a day of friendly reunion and festivity. 
I welcome any questions or suggestions.

1863 

I'll start with the class dance. The 
music was bad, the Cafe Mancini dingy, 
but it cannot be said that the party 
lacked atmosphere! About forty couples 
were present. Sas, Sandy, and Helen were 
there with dates. The chaperones were 
good sports. In searching for adjectives 
to describe the evening, such choice 
words as "cool", "too short", "flowing", 
and "smokey" have come from some of 
you. All who went say they enjoyed it, 
but have trouble remembering details 
. . . The company was good. The dance 
was a wonderful start to a fabulous 
summer. 

Many of the class of '63 were in 
Europe. Joanie and Freddie were with 
the Experiment . . . Joanie in Germany 
and Freddie in France. Anita was with 
another group. Tish was in Austria. 
Jackie V.A. is the only one who is in 
Europe for the college year. She is at 
the Sorbonne. 

On the staffs of different camps in New 
England were many of our classmates: 
Sue Archer at Les Chalets Francais "en 
train d'enseigner francais" and also sail- 
ing. Suzy B. was back at Avalon on the 
Cape teaching a little of everything. Lois 
and Peggy were at Three Pines teaching 
dance. Bo was at a camp in Maine. Donna 
was active in the kitchen at a conserva- 
tion workshop. Carla was at Tanglewood 
for the season. Meg was at the Harvard 
Drama center. Maidy was at the Harvard 
Summer School. Chris and Sa were out 
in Colorado for a five week study (?) pro- 
gram. 

Those who were working in other fields 
gained some priceless experience and 
some very useful wages. Karla was in a 
stock factory. Debby was on a dairy farm. 
Karen was working in a hospital as the 
assistant anaesthesiologist. Suttle was a 
chambermaid at a Chatham motel. From 
Hollins she writes that she and Hump 
love Hollins and mail ... it sounds 
familiar. Hump says that there is a night 
watchman there too. Paishy worked as a 
waitress up in the Adirondacks. She 
writes that she is active in the Drama 
Club's first production at Bryn Mawr. 
Carolyn was in Duxbury teaching tennis 
as usual. Trying hard to complete her 
hours for the Junior League, Mimi was 
busy working at the Archives Museum 
and at the House for the Blind in Bos- 
ton. She even managed to fit in a trip 
to see Poops and the Famous Brule. I was 
working at Burch Books in Darien all 
summer and Christmas vacation. Emory 
was acting as nursemaid for the children 



[25] 



of an Abbot alumna, '49. Emily Moulton 
traveled all over Alaska with family 
friends. Nanny spent a few very peaceful 
Aveeks on Nantucket and a few not so 
peaceful weeks at home in Nashua work- 
ing as a secretary. She also spent a few 
days in Riverside visiting with me as did 
Sue Archer. Anita Miller worked in Cen- 
tral Supply at a nearby hospital again 
this summer. She mentioned a visit with 
Sands in Bermuda in September. Sands 
is now at Katy Gibbs in Boston. Cherry 
spent her third summer working as assist- 
ant in the Wolfeboro Drug Shop. Barb 
Rugen was on the Cape having fun as 
usual. Nat Ware had a baby sitting job 
in Maine for a couple of weeks and loved 
it. Apparently there was time for quite 
a bit of socializing. The Wares are mov- 
ing up to New London, N.H. for the 
skiing season. It was a very busy summer 
for most. There is also evidence of a very 
social summer for many . . . 

Mary Johnson, Muffie and Jo are down 
at Sweet Briar and find it very nice and 
very southern. Among those who have 
pledged to sororities at their colleges and 
universities are Carolyn Holcombe and 
Sue Archer. Carrie has pledged Theta Pi 
Gamma at Beloit, and Sue has pledged 
Kappa Delta at Northwestern. 

By the way, Carrie was elected to the 
Standard Board or Stu-G of her sorority. 
Also, she is one of the chosen few to be 
in the Vesper Choir. Danica Miller is 
photographer for the newspaper and the 
yearbook at Oberlin. She spent Christmas 
vacation in Palm Springs, Calif. Rosemary 
Eustace is fortunate to be studying in 
Switzerland this year. There she is taking 
Psychology, French, Interior Decorating 
and is also taking courses in cooking and 
sewing. Her address is Le Mesnil, Mon- 
treux Territet, Suisse. 

I had lunch with Maria Pastoriza at 
Trader Vic's during Thanksgiving vaca- 
tion. She looked perfectly lovely and 
sounded very happy. She is very glad she 



decided to go to college in the States. 
She had a delightful summer at home and 
attended many festivities. She was also 
in a fashion show. Rosie visited Maria in 
the Dominican Republic in July. 

Bettina Proske is delighted to be living 
back in Oyster Bay. She was in Germany 
for the summer. Bettina spent part of 
Christmas vacation at home and the rest 
at the Wares in New Hampshire. While 
there, she and Nat skied often. She is 
happy at Mt. Holyoke where she is major- 
ing in German. 

From Bates, Anita Miller writes that 
she is doing well and is enjoying coedu- 
cation. She has taken up skiing this 
winter. 

Others visiting in the New York area 
over the vacation were Meg Power, Sue 
Archer, and Bizzy Bartelink. Bizzy came 
down to see Anita Schenck with whom 
she is rooming at Smith. Also, rooming 
together at Smith are Helen Watson and 
Morley Marshall. They are all working 
diligently and are also enjoying the social 
life. Morley spent Thanksgiving at the 
Deans in Cohasset. 

Nanci Sullivan and Emily Moulton went 
down to Andover during Christmas vaca- 
tion and had a visit with Mrs. Frederick. 

I hear from Suzy Burton and Chris 
Stern at Bennett occasionally. Suzy's new 
address is 101 Mottrom Drive, McLean, 
Virginia. 

College life is proving very agreeable 
to all. The freedom is such that I can 
see it is going to take a lot of will 
power to live successfully under such 
liberal systems. Good luck and much 
happiness. Watch the blind dates. 

I shall be sending out a questionnaire 
in April and I hope you will all take a 
few minutes to fill it out. It is far from 
dull, rather amusing and fun! Have a 
good Spring Vacation.

AFTER my pleasure in seeing so many of you on the ninth 
of May, I am as usual wishing that I might sometime 
meet every one of you. A considerable number of you I know 
already and would love to see again — many more I know 
only by name or by the thought that a sense of your presence 
at Abbot is still here on this campus! 

My watch runs a little fast and every day or so I must 
do as I have just done now, put back the hands so as to be 
in step with the Abbot bells. It gives me a most welcome 
feeling of having been given eight minutes to live over 
again. How often I wish I could have more time than that 

to spend more wisely or happily 

than I actually did! Of course, no 

one engaged actively in education 

is ever so idle as to be able to 

reflect long on the past. Here at 

Abbot, however, the past is with 

us constantly and significantly and 

you are all partof this atmosphere. 

The future, as you have heard or read here before, is even 

more our concern — new students, new teachers, new courses, 

for the short run, and many exciting dreams and plans for 

the long run. The interest and concern of so many of you 

in this future is heartening indeed. 

It gives me pleasure to speak of two administrative 
offices. Miss Tucker, Director of Studies, will retain that title 
but will be also Vice-Principal of the Academy; the Director 
of Admissions next year will be Mrs. Ford Duncan, who 
comes to us from the Northampton- School. 

With great good wishes to you as for Abbot.

Know Your Trustees 

(Reprinted from Cynosure) 

Mr. Robert I. Hunneman, president of the Board of Trustees and 
an attorney in Boston, explained the functions of the trustees and told 
about their occupations and interests in an interview. 

The Board of Trustees of Abbot is ultimately responsible for both 
the legal and the financial administration of the school. It is a decision 
of the board as to whether a new dormitory is built or whether Abbot 
should become co-ed. There are eighteen members on the Board from 
various walks of life, each giving his expert views on any issue that 
may arise. 

Business men are necessary to the Trustee Board as consultants for 
all finances and investments. Mr. Burton S. Flagg is the treasurer and 
Mr. Gardner Sutton, who has his office here at school, is the comptroller. 
Mr. E. Benjamin Redfield, Jr. is district director of the Northwestern 
Mutual Life Insurance Company. Mr. George F. Sawyer is a financial 
executive and president of the Marshall-Wells Co. of Norwich, Conn. 
Miss Jane B. Baldwin is a trust officer of the Irving Trust Co. in New 
York City, and is an Abbot alumna. Mr. Philip K. Allen is the president 
of Auto and Marine Guard Co. of Andover, Massachusetts. Mr. J. Rad- 
ford Abbot is an architect. Mr. Stoddard E. Stevens is a lawyer and a 
partner in Sullivan and Cromwell of New York City. Mrs. Horatio 
Rogers of North Andover is concerned with the Merrimack Valley 
Textile Museum in North Andover. Mrs. Lenert W. Henry is an alumna 
of Abbot and was head of the Gymnasium Fund Drive. 

Many of the members are connected with education. Miss Margaret 
Clapp is president of Wellesley College. Mr. G. Grenville Benedict is 
Dean of Students at Phillips Academy. Reverend Sidney Lovett, former 
Chaplain of Yale University, is connected with Yale-in-China in New 
Haven, Connecticut. Mrs. Wilbur K. Jordan is the clerk of The Protein 
Foundation and a former Dean of Radcliffe College. Mrs. Alexander 
Crane is Headmistress of Abbot Academy. 

The two alumnae trustees are elected every three years to serve for 
six years. It is intersting that the present representatives are both 
connected with education. Miss Helen Ripley works in Washington, 
D.C., with the United States Department of Health, Education and 
Welfare, directing the teaching of Non-Western languages in graduate 
schools. Miss Alice C. Sweeney of Andover, Massachusetts, is the former 
Dean of Studies at Abbot. 

The Board of Trustees meets three times a year. As often as possible 
these meetings are held at Abbot. The June meeting, for the election 
of officers, is always held here on the campus. 

There are three committees of the Board. The executive com- 
mittee which meets once a month is composed of eight members. It 
acts for the trustees between meetings and prepares recommendations 
for the trustees on matters of general policy. There is also a nominat- 
ing committee and an investment committee.

PEACE CORPS VOLUNTEER 
TO GHANA 

Sandra Moulton, 1959 

A stint with the Peace Corps begins with an invitation to come to 
training, and a request to not tell everyone that you are joining the 
Peace Corps because, friend, you might not survive the training. And 
for some people the association with the Peace Corps does end there. 
The training for me was an endurance test, physically and mentally. 
At its worst it is instant education, at its best it is constantly fascinat- 
ing. Fifty of us made it through last summer's session at the Berkeley 
campus of the University of California and armed with some new 
knowledge, a lot of curiosity, and a bloodstream full of every possible 
disease protection, we left New York on Pan American's bi-weekly flight 
to Dakar, Monrovia, Accra, and Lagos early in September. The first 
thing we noticed at the Accra airfield was the heat, the second, how 
tired we were. We were packed unceremoniously off to Legon, Univers- 
ity of Ghana, and put into session there for ten days of "in-country 
training". 

My headmaster came to pick me up about a week before school was 
to start and we drove quickly down the ninety miles to Cape Coast. 
This is a town of about 30,000 people and a long history of Dutch, 
Portuguese, and British traders in everything from gold to slaves. The 
influence of these people is evident, if only in some of the older houses; 
some are very solidly built while others have balconies that might have 
carried darkhaired ladies with roses ready to throw down to a singing 
cavalier. The more obvious legacies of the colonial powers are a castle, 
known as Cape Coast Castle, and a fort. And because this was a port 
until very recently, there is a lighthouse perched on one of Cape Coast's 
many hills. The fort naturally is unoccupied. The castle is still one of 
the administrative centres of this region. The marks of the slave trade 
are still quite evident in the dungeons of this white-washed building on 
the beach. The only commodity now leaving here, though, is lime-juice 
concentrate and the loading is still done by surf boats which must be 
paddled out to the freighter off-shore. It is hard work and fascinating 
to watch. Until the new ports of Takoradi and Tema were built re- 
cently, all goods coming to Ghana, including people, had to be loaded 
and unloaded in these boats. They are huge logs that have been burnt 
and chiseled out and are amazingly manageable; or so it seems to me. 
The crews paddle in time to chants. The Fanti people of Cape Coast 
are basically a fishing and farming society and they have a long history 
of trying to protect themselves from the more warlike Ashanti, inland, 
as well as from the raiding Europeans. This rivalry continues to-day 
only as a tradition, for the many peoples of Ghana are now under one 
flag, whatever their local loyalty may be. 

I am of course as still amazed to-day by the view from my house 
as I was the day that the headmaster brought me. I have a second floor 
of a duplex which is on a hill further inland, but between the hills of 



the lighthouse and of the fort. The ocean horizon is usually blue behind 
the palm trees along the beach and from my balcony there is a creamy 
church steeple rising out of the town which is at my feet. Rarely of 
course is a day grey, for we are very close to the equator; rather, the 
sun is so hot that it is true that only mad men go out in it. And after- 
noon sleeps, whatever one have thought of them at home, can become 
unavoidable. 

Here in Ghana there are 116 volunteers teaching in secondary 
schools. We teach French, the sciences or maths, sharing duties with 
teachers from all over the world. At Aggrey Memorial, where I teach 
French, the other members of the staff are from Germany, Scotland, 
Switzerland, Russia, Pakistan, India, Canada, as well as Ghana. Their 
financial position differs somewhat from that of the volunteers and so 
we sometimes have difficulty in reconciling the way of life implied by 
the words Peace Corps with that of the other foreign teachers here. 
Our professional problems are rarely with Ghanaians, but with the 
tradition already set up by the founders of the schools for "European" 
teachers. We too are Europeans. 

But the great need for teachers cannot be denied. I have a thirty 
hour school week, from 7:15 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. every day. The kids, of 
course, are just kids despite the differences in background. In the 
afternoons, I attempt to conduct choir rehearsals which very often 
degenerate into song fests. On one day I give piano lessons. Sometimes 




[7] 



I try to speak the local dialect with the students during free time. 
Mostly we all get a good laugh. One or two evenings a week I teach 
adult education classes for the Institute of Public Education. On Sat- 
urday morning my steward and I make an expedition to the market. 
Bargaining, I'm afraid is not one of my more notable talents. At the 
beginning of the year some middle school children used to come visiting 
when they should have been in school. I was quite emphatic (as is 
possible for me to be in Fanti) about what I thought of people skipping 
school. As a result, I am now paying the fees of my steward so that he 
can also finish his schooling. He cooks my breakfast and lunch and 
dusts rather vaguely around the place. Since teachers have long vaca- 
tions here, a bit too long for the Peace Corps "image", we also do 
projects, which may mean working in a hospital or building a school 
or doing something worthwhile on one's own school compound. There 
is also a national workcamps association that calls on the students 
from the secondary schools to spend their Saturday mornings carrying 
sand for cement or digging dirt for building latrines in nearby villages 
under teacher supervision. 

I share my flat with a cat, and wandering PCVs on the weekends. 
I am lucky to have a lot of space. They come to Cape Coast to take 
advantage of the beach or to do some shopping. We, here, sometimes 
take to the bush to get out of the sun. Friends inland sometimes need 
a fourth for a week-end bridge game. Travel for volunteers is chiefly 
by lorry, or truck, although isolated volunteers do have jeeps. "Isolated" 
means that water or shopping supplies are not easy to get at. (Electricity 
at most schools is supplied by a generator run by the school at certain 
hours, generally mealtimes and at study times.) The first of my journeys 
by lorry was in the rainy season and I hadn't learned to be choosy. 
If twenty mph is satisfactory, so much the better, but it is possible 
to travel faster than that. Up to now, I have been able to visit volunteers 
in the forest at Axim, in the dry dust of Tenia, in the beautiful Ashanti 
capital of Kumasi. Once in a while I hitch the fifty miles to Takoradi 
when I really get hungry for something different to eat, i.e. other than 
rice, yam, or plantain, bananas and market meat, and tinned corned 
beef. Of course we make many visits to the capital, Accra, to the office 
for this and that, to the Hostel for chit chat. Sunday afternoons finds 
many PCVs on the beautiful beaches somewhere along the coast of 
Ghana. 

If you read the newspapers, you might have guessed that the 
situation here is not easy, politically. But we are not the only ones 
who are accused. The political and social consequences for our fellow 
staff members is as difficult for them as for us. And the cultural change 
is difficult for anyone, with or without training. At first I found it 
somewhat disconcerting to be pointed at, stared at, and used to scare 
crying children into silence, as I walked down the street. It seems, as 
I later learned, that Europeans pass only in cars. They now know 
me in my neighbourhood and so we exchange 'good morning' and 'good 
evening' in dialect, with smiles, not fear or suspicion or whatever. Then 
of course there is the problem of adapting one's teaching to a new 
school system as well as to new minds and new conditioning. Aside 

[8 I 



from the periodic water or electricity shortage, our daily existence here 
is easy enough. Therefore, to understand our difficulties might be harder 
than if we were materially very badly off. 

It is necessary to imagine yourself where the people speak another 
language which you do not know and are generally not required to use, 
people who think with a different mind because their experience is 
alien to anything western. Imagine that within this place you are con- 
strained to live as you did in the USA or as near to it as possible; that 
you have an easy contact with only the issolated community of educa- 
tion, its staff and students, and none at all, or only cursory, with the 
inhabitants of the town, or with the middle class, or with the power 
of your town. Imagine, if you are white, that little girls curtsey to you 
in the street and that babies may be frightened when they see you; 
imagine that some people are suspicious of you because not only are 
you an American, but you are a Peace Corps Volunteer. Imagine further 
that you have come to try and learn as well as teach, and notice that 
you are kept in your tower both by the Ghanaians and the other 
Europeans who have established the traditional distances for the 
foreigner a long time back. Imagine that the work you do is incom- 
patible with the kind of teaching to which you are accustomed, being 
rote learning, and that you deal only with an elite % of the population. 
We do not do "grass roots" Peace Corps work in Ghana. In short 
imagine yourself doing enjoyable and satisfactory (as regards the child- 
ren) work, but not what most people are led to expect of the Peace 
Corps from the stateside descriptions of volunteers building bridges in 
South America. I should imagine that it is much the same for Peace 
Corps teachers in at least most of Africa. Imagine yourself somewhere 
where you can never be lost because you are, obviously, by dress if 
nothing else, a foreigner, and yet, you are always alone. 

The resulting situation need hardly be embroidered with a painting 
of the realities of a volunteer's frustrations. But it is true that too often 
the ivory existence of a volunteer only gleams on the outside of his 
bungalow. We are led to ask ourselves why we ever joined. The answer, 
though, whatever it may have been originally, becomes immaterial — 
especially on those days when the smiles of a class show we have made 
ourselves understood.

ABBOTS ADVANCED COURSES 

Aline Hill, Abbot, 1964 

Excerpts from a talk given at the Alumnae Meeting on May 9. 

I am sure that for many of you, coming back to Abbot involves 
seeing many changes around campus. I'd like to give you a brief insight 
into some recent improvements and additions not so apparent to the 
eye, but more important, changes in the academic side of Abbot, 
specifically, the addition of advanced courses to the curriculum. The 
purpose of this extension beyond the basic requirements of a secondary 
school education is two-fold: First of all, to provide an opportunity 
for capable girls to investigate more deeply into areas of particular 
interest to them; and secondly, to enable these girls to fulfill certain 
college course requirements before they enter college in order that 
they might start to specialize sooner and take greater advantage of the 
large variety of courses offered. Occasionally, if a girls participates in a 
sufficient number of advanced courses here and earns college credit for 
them, she may enter college with complete sophomore standing. Such 
a feat was accomplished by last year's senior class president, Meg Power, 
who entered Radcliffe last year as a sophomore. 

Many of the advanced courses are in continuing subjects for those 
girls who began a subject before freshman year or are specially selected 
for the course. Most of the participants in advanced courses are seniors. 
The English Advanced Placement or honors class does more extensive 
outside reading and extra work in composition under the head of the 
department. Fourth and fifth year Latin courses do advanced work 
and are relatively small. Spanish IV is also fairly small. One of Abbot's 
representatives in the Spoken-Spanish Contest sponsored by the Pan- 
American Society of New England received second prize. An advanced 
Science Course in Bio-Chemistry is offered. An advanced Math course 
is also offered. During the winter term a seminar in the chronological 
study of American History and American Literature was offered. 

Students who have taken these courses will take advanced placement 
tests during the last week of May.

NEWS from the CLUBS 

The BOSTON Club's annual meeting was held at Brae Burn 
Country Club in Newton, Mass. Mrs. Leonard Fowle introduced Mrs. 
Ralph Earle of Swampscott who gave a delightful talk, "Fashion a la 
Carte". Mrs. Crane and Miss Sullivan came from Abbot. 

The NEW YORK Club held its annual spring luncheon at the 
Smith College Club in the Hotel Berkshire on March 7. Mrs. Crane 
and Jane Sullivan brought news of the school. Miss Eleanor Tucker, 
Director of Studies at Abbot, showed slides of her trip around the world.

QlaH A/eiud, 



1884 
Ellen Webster, age 100, wished she 
might have been at Abbot on Alumnae 
Day, but "Feared it was a little too far." 
She is very well, and quite cheerful, 
although sometimes annoyed that her 
activities have to be curtailed. 

1894 

Hanna Greene Holt was the only mem- 
ber of her class who attended Alumnae 
Day. She is very well and enjoys her age. 
She lives part of the year with her daugh- 
ter, Jane Holt Atkinson, in Winchester, 
Mass., and part of the year with her 
daughter, Emily Holt Mucklow, in Glas- 
tonbury, Conn. She celebrated her 90th 
birthday last November. 

Katherine Lahm Parker writes, "Life is 
so full of interest and activity that I do 
not want to leave it. Hope others of my 
generation feel the same way. I would 
like to attend my seventieth reunion in 
Andover, but the journey to Abbot is too 
long for my years. Best wishes for a happy 
reunion to those who do attend." 

Florence Merrill Featherston and her 
husband are living in the same house 
that they built 46 years ago in Clements, 
Calif. Their home is a family center for 
their four daughters and their children. 

1898 
Beulah Loomis Hyde continues her in- 
terest in Art. She has had many one-man 
shows. She has just returned from a trip 
around the world.

1901, Mildred Mooers Poore, 1902, 

Harriet Chase Newell, 1902, and 

Lottie May Redford, 1900, at the 

Alumnae Luncheon 



1899 

Ruth Chi Ids Young broke her hip in 
1959 and has been in a nursing home 
ever since. Her son is in Turkey inspect- 
ing RCA sights. 

Beatrice Reed has been in a nursing 
home for the past five or six years. Re- 
cently she had major surgery — her 
recovery has been remarkable. 

1904 

Mary Byers Smith was the only member 
of the class present on Alumnae Day. 
She has had two air-trips since last 
June: one, for a delightful visit to Miss 
Dorothy Baker, former member of the 
English Department, in Bath and a trip 
to Norway with her; the other, to the 
West Coast to visit Beulah Loomis Hyde, 
1898. 

Helen Childs Baldwin writes, "I was 
very homesick during my first year at 
Abbot, but was quite happy the last two 
years. Miss Means was especially kind to 
me, and I repaid her by one thing I said 
when she rapped at my door one night 
late!! I thought the quiet rapping was one 
of the girlsi so I answered this, 'Gee, 
golly, gosh, damn devil, darn louse, come 
in'. Can you imagine what Miss Means 
said and what I said when she opened the 
door with a smile! She said, 'Helen 
Childs, I am your principal, not one of 
the girls and deserve a better invitation 
to come into your room'. 

"After Abbot I graduated from Lucy 
Wheelock's Kindergarten School. I mar- 
ried, am now a widow and have three 
children who are doing well in various 
ways. Since my husband's death, I have 
taken up craft-work with the Girl Scouts 
and received my 35-year pin in April. 

"I was 80 years old on April 24 — 
so you see I am really getting on. I 
don't feel old and I won't give up yet, 
hurrah!" 

Editor's note — 

Mrs. Baldwin has been blind in her 
right eye for several years. Congratula- 
tions on your spirit. 

Laura Eddy McCabe writes, "I sold 
my home in Evanston and bought a 
small apartment in a large unit for 
retired people. I still have my car, but 
no longer drive to the East. My two 
sons live near-by in Evanston, and my 
daughter lives in Nebraska." 



[23] 



Sophie Gibbs Sage was unable to at- 
tend reunion. She has two sons. William 
is investment administrator and vice- 
president of the Aetna Insurance Co. 
in Hartford. 

Harriet Harmon writes, "For the past 
three months I have been confined to a 
nursing home because of an operation. 
I miss my many church and literary 
club activities and doing for others which 
gave me much pleasure." 



1905 

Fannie Erving Arundale and her hus- 
band celebrated their 50th wedding an- 
niversary on April 21st, with an Open 
House given by their two sons and their 
wives. They have 5 grandchildren and 
2 great-grandchildren. 



1906 

Constance Parker Chipman flew to 
Arizona in April to visit her daughter, 
Faith. She was in Kansas visiting another 
daughter on Alumnae Day — we all 
missed her. 

1914 

Reunion Report 

On April 16, 1964 Marie Winsor Apple- 
by's husband, Theodore Franklin Apple- 
by, died. He was a graduate of Amherst 
College, and at the time of his death was 
president of a firm of real estate and 
insurance brokers in Asbury Park, New 
Jersey. Our sincere sympathy to you, 
Marie. 

Helen Burk Jones reports that three 
years ago she decided to amuse herself 
by opening a select candy shop in Chest- 
nut Hill, Pa. What she had thought 
of as a small personal venture developed 
into a flourishing business which now 
keeps her busy six days a week. She 
wrote, "It is the best thing I ever tried 
to do and I enjoy every minute of each 
day, but there is no time for such 
frivolities as reunions." 

Helen Gilbert Rich had expected to be 
traveling in Europe with her husband at 
the time of reunion, but illness caused 
a change in their plans. Now they are 
going on the North Cape cruise in July. 
They have moved from Staten Island to 
an apartment in New York and to their 
surprise are finding both apartment life 
and city life highly enjoyable. Helen has 
five children, all married, and ten grand- 
children, five of each kind. One of her 



daughters, Elizabeth Rich Ferguson, of 
the class of 1944, came back for her 
twentieth reunion this year. 

Louise Allaman Austin sent greetings 
from Dayton, Ohio. She had planned to 
come to reunion with Marie Winsor 
Appleby, but they gave up the idea after 
the death of Marie's husband. 

Emma Holt Garside spent most of the 
winter in California visiting a married 
daughter. Her son is also married and 
she has several grandchildren. Her home 
is in Saco, Maine. 

Helen Hanscom Winslow now lives on 
the Cape (West Dennis). She too spent 
the greater part of the winter in Cali- 
fornia visiting her married daughter. 
Helen's husband died in 1961, and the 
first winter after his death she joined 
her daughter in South Africa and had 
an interesting four months in Kenya 
and Uganda. Her daughter's husband is 
an engineer whose work takes him to 
widely separate parts of the world. His 
next job is in Spain, and Helen expects 
to join her daughter and son-in-law in 
Madrid next winter. 

Margaret Wylie Ware wrote from La 
Jolla, California, explaining that her 
plan to return for reunion had to be 
given up because her son (and only 
child) will be returning from England 
this month. Her son has just rounded 
out a twenty-year term in the air force 
as his father also did. Margaret heard 
recently from Hildegarde Gutterson Smith 
who now lives in Santa Barbara. Another 
member of the class in California is 
Dorothy Bennett, who now lives in 
Pasadena. 

Frances Dozvd Chittenden wrote from 
Hamden, Conn, that she was heading 
for a college reunion later in the 
month and didn't have time for two so 
close together. Her older sister Rachel 
now lives in Winter Park, Florida and 
visits in Connecticut during the summer. 

The members of the class actually 
present for the reunion are the following: 
Elisabeth Bartlett Jenks, Harriet Bowman 
Meeker, Marion Clark Myerscough, Helen 
Hamblet Dyer, Helen Hanscom Winslow, 
Mary Hildreth, Emma Holt Garside, and 
Alice Sweeney. They were joined at the 
luncheon table by Mary Byers Smith, '04 
and in the afternoon by various members 
of the class of '15 so they had a pleasant 
sense of renewing old acquaintanceship. 

Alice C. Sweeney 
Reunion Chairman

1922 

Sister Mary Anselm (Katharine Gage) 
is flying to the Philippines in June to 
work in a mission in the mountains in 
Luzon. She writes, "It is like a return 
to my childhood to go back to an oriental 
country, and a chance to say 'thank you' 
for the many joys of our childhood. My 
work will be with our native novices and 
Bible teaching in the local high school." 

1923 

Libby Flagg Dow is in Berkeley, Calif. 
Sterling is lecturing at the University of 
California at Berkeley. She writes, "We 
are gloriously worn with the great friend- 
liness and cordiality of the Californians." 

Esther Wood Peirce writes, "My hus- 
band is retiring from the staff of the 
Royal Victoria Hospital in June, but his 
retirement from the McGill faculty 
doesn't take effect until August. We have 
three married children and twelve grand- 
children. One son is unmarried and is 
returning from three years in Germany." 

1924 
Reunion Report 

Reunion Chairmen — Sybil Bottomley 
Talman and Kay Hart Mitchell. 

Reunion time has come and gone. It 
didn't seem possible that we were cele- 
brating our 40th. What we lacked in 
numbers we made up in spirit. For your 
information, we mailed 67 letters to our 
classmates — only 17 of which were 
acknowledged. Of these — seven were 
acceptances. 

Ruth Kelley Perry, Sybil Bottomley 
Tolman, Eleanore Ireland Saunders, Sue 
Smith Bowler, and Kay Hart Mitchell 
stayed at the Rolling Green Motel in 
Shawsheen. Ruth Pritchard de Rivera 
and Betty Harririgton Wilson were there 
for the day and evening. After the Alum- 
nae Meeting we all enjoyed a most 
delicious buffet luncheon followed by the 
Annual Bazaar. After a visit to the booths, 



there was a presentation of Alice In 
Wonderland at McKeen. Tea was served 
at Sunset Cottage at four. Eater on, Sybil 
and Kay had a small cocktail party in 
their room before the class dinner at 
Fieldstoncs. After dinner we all returned 
to Rolling Green where we burned the 
midnight oil. 

Here are some highlights from the 
letters the girls wrote to us and their 
reasons for not being able to return. 

Genevra Rum ford was on a trip to 
California by Cargo Liner which she had 
been anticipating for a long while. She 
is very active in hospital work and in the 
Delaware SPCA. 

Tommie Thompson James just couldn't 
make it this year but sent her best to all. 

Polly Bullard Holden is spending the 
month of May in Nigeria with her eldest 
daughter Sally, who is in the Peace Corps, 
and teaches English and history in 
Ashogho College. 

Nancy Chamberlain Newman writes 
how happy she is that her daughter who 
has been in Heidelberg for three years 
with her husband and two little girls 
is returning to live in Suffolk, Va. He 
was in the Army, and will now be a 
civilian practicing dentistry. 

Helen Epler Baketel has just returned 
from Europe and brought home a "bug" 
which she hasn't been able to shake. She 
sent her best to all the "healthy, hearty" 
souls who were able to make reunion. 

Marge Wolfe Reed's husband has been 
very ill, and she was unable to leave 
him at this time. She sent a darling 
picture of herself sitting on the porch 
of their lovely old 1765 cottage in Conn, 
wearing her grandmother's sunbonnet 
and holding her grandmother's fan. She 
looks just as young and pretty as ever, and 
without one gray hair! 

Peg McDonald Vester keeps herself 
busy with the League of Women Voters, 
Mental Health Association and Council 
on Human Relations. For recreation she 
plays bridge and has two black cats who 
keep her company. She enclosed a picture 
of her seven beautiful grandchildren, 
three of whom live near her in Tampa, 
and four who live in Ohio. 

Rebecca George wrote that she just 
coiddn't make it. 

Peg McKee DeYoe and her husband 
have just returned from 2% months in 
the South Pacific. They loved New 
Zealand best of all. Because it was 
Mother's Day week end, and all their 
children and grandchildren live within 



[25] 



an eight mile radius, she couldn't bear 
to think of leaving home. However, She 
expects to see everyone at the 50th! 

Babe Korst King was unable to come, 
but sent a lot of news of her family. Her 
husband and 2nd son are with Ford 
Motor Co. Her son is a patent attorney 
and is an engineer for Ford and has 
one child. Her oldest son is a career 
Captain in the Air Force and has four 
children. Her youngest son is in a bank 
and unmarried. Between her grand- 
children, American Field Service Work, 
College Courses and a large garden which 
she tends to — she manages to keep busy. 

As for news of the seven who returned 
to Abbot for Alumnae Day — guess we 
were all too busy chatting to learn very 
much about each other's activities. 

However, we will try to give you as 
much news as we can remember. 

Ruth Pritchard de Rivera is Chairman 
of the Winchester Scholarship Committee 
and does volunteer work one day a week 
at the Winchester Hospital, as well as 
another day at the Mass. General. She 
has three children and four grand- 
children. 

Betty Harrington Wilson is active in 
the Red Cross. She has two children and 
four grandchildren. 

Sue Smith Bowler works for various 
Research Survey Agencies and finds her 
work fascinating. She has one child. 

Sybil Bottom ley Talman is the Ad- 
ministrative Assistant to the Director of 
United Funds of Attleboro. 

Ruth Kelley Perry works with a class 
of retarded children one day a week. She 
has three children, one of whom is 
married and has a darling ten months 
old daughter. 

Eleanore Ireland Saunders and Kay 
Hart Mitchell are just busy being house- 
wives — although Kay ardently pursues 
her hobby of antiques, and glass collect- 
ing in particular. 

Guess this about ends the resume. We 
all had fun and just wish more of our 
classmates could have been there too. 
Make a real effort to come next time — 
See you all in '69. 

Kay Hart Mitchell 

1925 

Dorothy Beeley Marsh and her husband 
are now living in the San Fernando 
Valley. Their son is with Kidder Peabody

omore at the University of Arizona. 

Barbara Potter Larned's daughter, Pol- 
ly, has been selected by the University of 



California at Santa Barbara to spend her 
Junior year at the University of Bordeaux 
in France.

Reunion Report 

Mrs. Edwin A. Brewer (Marjorie Mac- 
Mullen), 168 Maple Ave., Shrewsbury, 
Mass. 



[27] 



The New England weather was good 
to us for our 25th reunion and Abbot 
never looked lovelier. It was really good 
to be back and we all wished that more 
of you could have come. We have to con- 
fess that some of us puffed a bit as we 
climbed the stairs to the chapel but 
"chapel" still seemed to hold specially 
poignant memories and perhaps symbol- 
izes the fact that though Abbot has 
moved forward greatly, it has never lost 
a stability of roots and ideals so that in 
many ways it seems completely un- 
changed. 

Barbara Bobst Paul, Lucia Buchanan 
Livingston, Olive Butler, Joan Hubbard 
Lawson, Barbara Leland Pearson, Vir- 
ginia Rice Kneller and I were the re- 
uning class of 1939. 

First, for those of you who couldn't 
come, the news of those of us who did: 

Bobo's son, Frank, is 21 and she has two 
daughters, Judy, 16i/ 2 > and Shirley tyz. 
Judy is apparently following in her 
mother's steps — having a fine voice and 
currently aspiring to a career in music. 
Lucia has reason enough for a busy life 
with 9-year old daughter, Marnie, and 11- 
year old son, Kipp, but she also does 
much volunteer work and says that she 
sees "Curt" about once a year in New 
York. Olive Butler joined us in time for 
lunch and thoroughly enjoys her position 
as right-hand gal for an Andover physi- 
cian who is coincidentally Abbot's doctor. 
Joan Hubbard Lawson came up from 
Connecticut, having left 14-year old 
Bruce at home still recovering from a 
leg broken while skiing. Joan also has a 
19-year old son, Jud, who is at Lafayette 
and a 4 -year old daughter. She and her 
husband have a beautiful new "vacation" 
house in West Springfield, N.H. Barbara 
Leland Pearson describes her life as 
"busy!" Her 15-year old son, Jack, is at 
Cardigan Mt. School and 10-year old Sally 
is at Belevedere Country Day School in 
Lowell of which school Barbara's husband 
has just become president of the trustees. 

Ginny Rice Kneller says she "dabbles 
in real estate". She is currently wondering 
what prep school her 16-year old son, 
Jay, will enter in the fall. Ginny and her 
family will be moving soon to a new 
home in Orleans. As for myself, — I have 
3 boys, 10, 9, and 7, seemingly innumer- 
able cats, dogs, snakes, turtles, hamsters 
and anything else alive that they can 
catch, and am slightly busy as a cub scout

eree and all the rest. 



At luncheon, which was utterly deli- 
cious and far from slimming, we all 
shared the messages I had received. It 
was fun for all of us to hear from so 
many of you. 

Here are some highlights, and how 
about those we didn't hear from sending 
their news to Abbot soon? 

Ellen Alden Reed went to Europe in 
April so felt she had had her trip for 
'64. Barbara Bellows Kaiser sent a card 
to us at Abbot — she had hoped to 
come East but couldn't make it. Mary 
Curtis-Vema. sent word that she would 
be singing in Texas on reunion day. We 
have all certainly been proud of your 
wonderful success, Curt. Nancy England 
Worlhen was kept home by family re- 
sponsibilities on reunion day, but sent 
a note of 'Hello' in time to be in- 
cluded here. 

Roz Graves Cleaver couldn't make it 
from Michigan for reunion, but expects 
to be in Andover often during the coming 
years as her daughter, Caroline, will enter 
the 9th grade at Abbot next year. Harriet 
Hume Waters sent a word of greeting, 
and her regrets that she couldn't make 
reunion. Cherrie Koch Danos wrote from 
Spain that her daughter, Polly, who spent 
her sophomore year at Abbot, is going 
to Radcliffe next fall; her daughter, 
Peggy, is a freshman at the American 
School of Madrid. Her husband is Manag- 
ing Director of 3M in Spain. 

Florence Mooney Doty sent "Fond 
hellos to my good friends of Abbot days" 
and news that she is moving to Switzer- 
land June 1 where her hsuband is to be 
European Editor of Aviation Week Maga- 
zine. Annie Oakman Deegan had to can- 
cel out at the last minute with a telegram 
that two of her four were ill — this 
has been a really big measles year! Polly 
Pancoast Tunkey had also hoped to come 
but is, instead, recuperating from a gall 
bladder operation. Polly's oldest boy, Bill, 
III is finishing his freshman year at 
Colgate. 17-year old Jeff hopes to go to 
Mt. Hermon next fall. Jim is in the 8th 
grade, Pam the 5th grade, and Chris, 
in grade 4. She said she and her family 
expect to be moving to Syracuse in the 
fall. 

Carol Parker Olson moved on May 4th 
and just couldn't make Andover too. She 
sent "love to everyone and tell them if 
they're ever in D.C. we are in the phone 
book". Only a change of street for your 
list — now 10 Rosemont Dr. Pat Perry 
Braun wrote that her son is a typical 11- 
year old (I have one 10J/2 and know what 



[28] 



you mean, Pat) while she is currently 
serving as president of the Board of Di- 
rectors of the Sheboygan County Guidance 
Center. Audie Rugg Shanaberg is busy 
with volunteer hospital work plus 4 off- 
spring, and sends "love to all". Is Newark, 
Ohio part of a new address we should 
have, Audie? Sadie Sawyer Wood had 
hoped to come back but her children's 
activities kept her in Bangor for the 
week end. 

A wonderful letter and picture came 
from Connie Smith Templeton. Her 17- 
year old daughter, Marge, swam for the 
U. S. last year in the Pan-American games 
in Brazil and comes to N.Y.C. in August 
to swim in the Olympic trials. Connie 
expects to become a grandparent (son 
Bob) in July. She and her 16-year old 
Susan will be in Elmira, N.Y. in August 
while "nerveless pop" goes to N.Y.C. with 
Marge for the trials. At the end of the 
summer Connie will be moving to 22122 
Islander, Huntington Beach, California 
with the welcome mat out. We'll be 
rooting for Marge and thanks for all your 
news, Connie. 

Jeanne Waugh Harney has 2 girls at 
Abbot and will be coming from Norway 
for Joan's graduation June 1st. We saw 
quite a bit of Joan and almost felt 
Jeanne was with us. Jeanne has moved 
from Greece and her new address is 
Norske Esso, P.O. Box 1369, Oslo, Norway. 
A letter from Woodie in Africa said she 
gets back to America every 7 years so 
she might make the 30th, having last 
been here 3 years ago. Her husband is 
now a judge of the Supreme Court, 
comparable to a Federal judge here. She 
also brought us up to date on her 4 
children, John, 21, Sue, 20, Tim, 16, and 
Anne, 13. 

The following letter was received from 
Lloyd Pierce Butler: 

"Greetings and best wishes to all of 
you from England. I remarried last 
summer and we now have a house we 
love about 30 miles from London in a 
country town surounded by beautiful Ken- 
tish countryside (in full bloom at the 
moment). I am expecting a baby late 
in June so I am also in full bloom (the 
late variety, to say the least!). My daugh- 
ter, Cynthia, is also expecting about two 
weeks earlier than I in Oak Ridge, Tenn., 
so there is something of a mother-daugh- 
ter race going on. Will I be a grand- 
mother before or after I become an 
English mama? My husband is with the 
diplomatic unit of the B.B.C. He writes 
and broadcasts political talks overseas. 



Some of his talks are translated and re- 
broadcasted into about 50 languages. We 
may get to the USA next year or some- 
time in the near future. My daughter 
Kim, age 17 is at school here in England. 
"My love and greetings to Abbot and 
all gathered for reunions." 

So there you have all the news that I 
received. Everyone seemed delighted to 
have the address list so be sure and 
keep it up to date by sending changes 
to the Alumnae Office. We wish more of 
you could have joined us and as so 
many of the cards and notes said, "Maybe 
next time." 

We did attend to a brief bit of business 
and were pleased to have Barbara 
Leland Pearson say she would be chair- 
man for our 30th reunion in 1969. Re- 
member the date!

1944 
Reunion Report 

Reunion Chairman: Mrs. Albert G. 
Tierney, Jr. (Elizabeth Colson), 20 Har- 
bor Ave., Marblehead, Mass. 

To those of you who couldn't journey 
to Abbot, there were the following 
young "same as ever" gals who called 
our 20th a success! See picture. Alva's 
son is at P.A. (and was squiring his 
date for Prom week-end) and her daugh- 
ter will attend Abbot next year. She 
and Aagot both look too young to have 
Prep-schoolers! We also met Tut Baylor 
Little's daughter, Debbie, during the day 
. . . she is a student at Abbot now, and 
seems very much like her mother. Gil 
Rich Ferguson's 12-year old Debbie joined 
us too and kept repeating how "neat" 
the school was with all that fun going 
on during the Bazaar. (Not quite a 
typical day of study!) 

The excellent luncheon following the 
Alumnae Meeting found us with two 
welcomed guests . . . Miss Hearsey and 
Miss McKee. Tihe afternoon passed 
quickly and was highlighted by our 
group descending on and enjoying 
thoroughly the hospitality of Mary Car- 
penter Dake and husband Rocky. (Cig- 
arets with Miss Hearsey and drinks with 
Mrs. Dake . . . make us know 20 years 
have passed!) Afterwards we dashed cross- 



[29] 



country to the Tedesco Country Club in 
Marblehead for much talk, cocktails, and 
dinner. 

One other innovation of May 9th was 
the long-distance, reverse-charges tele- 
phone calls we made to Marty Watkins 
Curry, and to B. J. Bertucio Martuscello. 
Both these recipients were really quite 
willing to foot the bill and the ensuing 
conversations were full of nonsense. Your 
representatives there came to the con- 
clusion that each absentee on our 25th 
will also be honored by a long-distance, 
you-pay telephone call. It will be easier 
(and cheaper) to come! 

Betty Reid Buzby 

1947 

The class extends its sympathy to 
Nancy Barnard Soule whose mother died 
February 24. 

Carol McLean Bly's husband recently 
won an Amy Lowell Traveling Fellowship, 
an award given to poets, and a Guggen- 
heim Fellowship in Poetry. The Blys and 
their children are living in England and 
Norway this year. 

1948 

As of early May, twenty class members 
had returned questionnaires sent out 
earlier this year; not enough to work up 
any interesting or conclusive statistics, but 
here follows, in alphabetical order, news 
from a half dozen replies. 

Marty Barber is Mrs. P. B. Lowrance 
and lives in Earlysville, Va., with her hus- 
band and baby girl. Marty graduated 
from Hollins and later received an MA. 
as a medical technician from the Uni- 
versity of Virginia Hospital. Her husband 
is an associate professor of internal 
medicine at the University of Virginia. 
Her most exciting news is the birth of 
Laura after nine years of marriage. 

Bis Biss[Ood lives in Toledo, with her 
husband, Neal Galusha, and their four 
children (three boys and a girl). Bis at- 
tended Elmira College and was married 
in 1951 in Germany, where they lived for 
two years, visiting several European 
countries. "We moved every two and a 
half years so perhaps the nicest thing 
that happened was staying put for a 
change. I do as much outside volunteer 
work as is possible with four children, 
a four-story house and limited help . . . 
Neal enjoys his work (Thatcher Glass) 
and I enjoy my family (except at lunch 
times!). Have a handsome energetic 
brood." 



Lee Booth lives only seventy miles 
away in Kendallville, Ind., with her four 
children (three girls and a boy.) Lee 
attended Smith and married George Wit- 
wer in '51, and lived for many years in 
various suburbs of New Haven. George 
(Corky) is editor and general manager of 
the Kendallville News-Sun. They recently 
enjoyed a three-week vacation, principally 
to the Virgin Islands — the first vacation 
in four years! The most exciting thing? 
"Emergence from nine years of washing 
diapers!" 

Toddie Cookman is married to Ray- 
mond A. Price and lives in Fitchburg, 
Mass., with her two children. Toddie 
graduated from Wellesley and worked 
as a nursery-school teacher for a year. 
The Prices lived in Philadelphia and 
have been in Fitchburg for five years 
where Raymond is vice president of the 
Webber Lumber Co. Toddie does volun- 
teer work for the Hospital Guild, the 
Community Concert Association and the 
Fitchburg Art Museum. 

Lish Cooper has a daughter going on 
13, and three boys. She attended Hollins 
and married Barry Wright, Jr., an at- 
torney of Rome, Ga. Their most exciting 
news is "building a new house — which 
we had been planning for four years 
. . . This has been very exciting and 
very traumatic . . . With children in 
three separate schools I am not much 
more than a glorified bus driver." Lish 
hasn't been north of Baltimore in five 
years, "so while I move around a lot it 
seems mostly to be in small, concentric 
circles. I would love to hear from all of 
you — and really will answer. Would 
love to see anyone who will venture this 
far south." 

Patty Gillen has four boys and lives 
in Minneapolis with her husband, Preston 
C. Haglin, a civil engineer. She attended 
the University of Minnesota and has had 
two trips to Europe, "Both of which were 
very interesting and great fun. We have 
rounded our family out with our fourth 
son. I enjoy every day of my life with my 
husband and four nice boys." 

More news next issue of the Bulletin. 
But those who haven't returned their 
questionnaires, please do.

1949 

Reunion Chairman: Mrs. James P. 
McLane (Barbara Hamby) 7 Glenwood 
Dr., Darien, Conn. 

5 members of the class attended re- 
union — see picture. They send the 
following message: "We've decided to 
save the excavation of our class 'time 
capsule' until our 20th reunion at which 
we expect a much greater attendance. 

"To all of you who couldn't attend 
this reunion, we missed you. It was a 
lovely day — Andover and Abbot were 
beautiful." 

Barbara was unable to attend reunion 
at the last minute because she had 
German measles. She sent the following 
news: 

"Please extend my regrets and fondest, 
best wishes to everyone. I was really 
looking forward to this weekend, but 
hope others shall enjoy themselves. 

"Lyn Olney Paglee will not be at Abbot 
because her twins arrived on February 



25th! Annette Madelon and Mary Jane. 
Her Susan is nine and Robin is her boy 
(age unknown). Obviously, she is a busy 
mother. Margaret Black Dintruff lives in 
Rochester and has returned to college 
after twelve years — taking five courses 
a semester. Her three children, Carol, 12, 
Alison, 10, and Robbie, 8, as well as 
her husband, who is vice-president of 
Genesee Explosive Sales, Inc., think this 
is great, but life must be hectic at times. 

"Ninna Espaillat de Crouch sends her 
regards to everyone. Her three boys and 
one girl are beautiful children, the two 
older boys come up to Maine for sum- 
mer camp. For Dominican tourists, 
Nanna's telephone number is 2871 and 
she would love to see you! 

"Debbie Willams Troemner has just re- 
turned from Europe and the Near East. 
She saw Jo Parks Husovsky in Paris, who 
has announced the birth of a son, Peter 
Parks, on March 17th. 

" 'Zipper' Pierce Scriver is a doctor's 
wife in Montreal and the mother of 
Daellar, 6, Peter, 5, Julie, 3 1/4, and 
Paul, 9 months. She sends her best to 
all her old friends. 

"Freddie Brown Bettinger's husband is 
Rector of St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, 
Diocesan Youth Commissioner, and part- 
time Chaplain at the Veteran's Hospital, 
etc., etc., in Madison, Wisconsin. With 
four children and numerous civic duties, 
Freddie sounds happy and active. 

"Ellie Bozyan Warburg writes from 
London. Following her letter detailing 
her choral singing and home organ 
practice, came the announcement of 
their third son, John Peter, born April 
13th. 

"As for myself, Jim is assistant to the 
sales manager for Life Magazine and we 
lead a very suburban life in Darien. By 
September, Jimmy will be 8, Peter 7, 
Susan, 6, and Matthew, 3. Other than 
collecting for various funds, etc., I sub- 
stitute teach in nursery school on occa- 
sion, try and convert as many Darien 
residents as possible into Democrats, help 
with the annual Vassar seminars that are 
held here, and am on what looks like 
about a ten-year program for a second 
Masters' or whatever from Bank Street 
College of Education. I am slowly getting 
back into Parent Education, too, and am 
about to speak on discipline. Now that 
I have four products of my philosophy 
walking around Darien, I guess I'll have 
to state my case advisedly, although much 
more wisely than in what seem now like 
carefree undergraduate days!"

Reunion Report 

Reunion Chairman: Mrs. M. Judah 
Folkman (Paula Prial), 1 Emerson Place, 
Apt. 15-0, Boston, Mass. 

We have reason to be proud . . . our 
attendance at Reunion on May 9th was 
impressive. See our smiling faces in the 
Reunion picture; besides those who posed 
for the photographer, we can also report 
that Leslie Burgiel, Ann Hunt Graf, and 
Petie West Dorain came for at least part 
of the week end. We received messages 
from Audrey Davis Trowbridge, Linda 
Jones Campbell, and Marion Badoian 
Emmanuel . . . not to mention the many 
post cards returned to your Reunion 
Chairman. Thanks to all of you for help- 
ing to make it such a happy time! 

The week end began with an "Open 
House" at Paula Prial Folkman's apart- 
ment in Boston . . . and husbands seemed 



to enjoy meeting each other there! The 
weather was beautiful for the Luncheon 
and Bazaar at Abbot on Saturday; in 
fact, comments were heard to the 
effect that the sumptuous Lunch (in- 
cluding "Heavenly Goo") was going to 
put back all the many pounds we all 
seemed to have lost since our Abbot 
days! Ten of us carried our Reunion 
right through dinner at Fieldstone's, 
bringing a delightful day to a delightful 
close. 

Several interesting bits of news can be 
shared with you all . . . Marion Badoian 
Emmanuel and husband are in Boulder, 
Colorado, she at the National Center for 
Atmospheric Research, he at the National

and husband both teach at Deerfield 
Academy. Vicky Schwab Aronoff's hus- 
band is active in Ohio politics and is in 
tbe State Legislature. (Their third child 
was born this past February). Tbe 
Cincinnati newspaper had a reference to 
Tracy Aronoff recently — Tracy doesn't 
yet realize the significance of the Pledge 
of Allegiance, and has changed it to suit 
herself. Each morning at nursery school, 
she says: "I pledge allegiance to the 
flag of the United States of America, and 
to the Republican which is Stan." Pat 
Skilli)i Pelton's husband is with the 
Connecticut Bank and Trust Co. Pat 
teaches piano, plays the organ, and takes 
care of two little girls! Sam Thayer 
Zaeder enjoys life at the Taft Schol with 
"all those teen-age boys . . . and their 
own two children." Joan Wheeler Kauf-

lawyer. Nancy Friel was married April 11, 
1964 to Joseph B. Gill of Cranston, R.I.,

Roller Bearing Co. in New Britain, Conn.

Class Fund Secretary, and Sue Larter 
Lingeman will plan our 15th Reunion. 
In the meantime, keep Abbot informed

are due any time now for so many of 
you all . . . and all your other exciting 
news too!

Reunion Report 
Reunion Chairman: Gale Barton, 6 
Brimmer St., Boston, Mass. 

How does it feel to return to one's 
school after five years? Gale Barton, Lolly 



Bell, Susan Bradley, Ann Travers Butler, 
Sue Calnan, Alma Grew, Betsy Harriman, 
Elsie Kellogg, Missy McGehee, Tina Savell, 
Kitty Sides, Laurie Smith, and Sue Wholey 
are the '59ers who can answer the 
question. A report for the fifth reunion 
is a difficult task because so many things 
happened, and all of us who returned 
had different feelings and impressions. 
In general, Abbot has not changed much 
and none of us have changed much. 

The events of the day, for those who 
wonder what actually happens at a re- 
union, began with 9:30 registration. 
Alumnae from the various classes arrived 
and picked up name tags. At 10:30 the 
Alumnae Association meeting was held 
in the Chapel. After the official news 
and business was conducted, seniors came 
in singing old, familiar songs, serenaded 
Mrs. Crane and numerous alumnae classes, 
and then triumphantly marched out 
singing their own senior song. 

For many of us the high-light of the 
meeting was the report from three seniors 
about student government activities, cur- 
riculum, and the challenging experience 
of a course in Chinese language. It was 
interesting to learn that Abbot provides 
the opportunity for advanced study in 
French, English, Biochemistry, and 
Chinese, allowing some students to enter 
college on advanced standing. 

At 1:00 a delicious luncheon was served 
in the Bailey Dining Hall. Classes sat 
together. This was a fun time, alloAving 
'59ers to get caught up on the latest news 
and allowing us to conduct a little of our 
own business. Kate Sides was elected 
chairman of the 10th reunion and Susan 
Bradley was elected Class Fund Secretary 
for 1964-1969. 

In the afternoon the class treasure box 
was unearthed, and many very peculiar 
puzzling and, in some instances, un- 
mentionable trinkets were uncovered 
within. If feasible, these will be sent to 
the appropriate donors. 

The '59ers spent the rest of the after- 
noon at the Bazaar and a few stayed 
over at a picnic-dinner at my house. 

It is a pity that more did not come 
back to the reunion, but it is understand- 
able. Our class is very busy and spread 
all over the world. We have much to be 
proud of. In total, I heard from forty- 
three members. More than twenty-one are 
married, several are mothers, some are ex- 
pecting, many are engaged, many are still 
studying, some are traveling abroad. 

In general the fifth year reunion was 
a very enjoyable, very informative ex- 



[34] 



perience. I hope that many of you who 
didn't make the fifth reunion will get 
to the tenth. In all cases I send best 
wishes to all the members of the class 
of 1959.

arrived from her the day that I sent her

She has been singing with the 'Blue- 
Notes' at Wellesley this year and sang

weekend. She is also singing in the choir, 
taking part in crew, and is playing wild 
tennis; a fractured foot put her on

She was seen in the middle of Grand

mesters and is working at a Boston bank 
until the Fall, when she plans to return 
to N. U. 

Annie MacCready is the social chairman

exactly.

time to meet my deadline. She will be 
studying at Harvard this summer in 
preparation for her Junior Year Abroad.

Nanci Sullivan met Sue Archer and me 
in Andover over spring vacation where 
we had a short visit with Mrs. Frederick. 
Ratlcliffe seems to be the perfect place for 
Nanny. 

I went to Evanston over semester 
break and fell in love with the Univers- 
ity. I ran into the blonde version of 
Sharon Seeche at Yale Prom week end. 
Apparently blondes don't have more fun, 
because she was back to normal within 
a month. This summer I will be working 
at a small girl's college thirty-five miles 
north of New York. The campus is 
lovely and the people are wonderful. 
Also, I shall be acting as a tour guide in 
a program sponsored by the NSA for 
foreign students, Parlez-vous francais? 
Habla usted espanol? If you come to the 
World's Fair, don't fail to call me at 

home or at Briarcliff.

"Plus ^a change, plus c'est la meme chose" 

So it seems, at Abbot, as each autumn comes round, 
because there are similarities and echoes each year. We feel 
the tempo pick up, day by day through September; open- 
ing day arrives, with the shrieks of the old girls encounter- 
ing each other in the corridors and the wonderful stiff 
upper lips of the new girls. Stacks of new books on desks 
are transferred to waiting arms, there is much dashing to 
and fro with tests and tryouts and meetings. Vistas are 
opening up — the eye travels down the Maple Walk and 
the mind looks ahead to glimpse new knowledge. 



QbeetitujA* 



Of course there are changes. 
For every new face there is one 
missing; last year's Seniors are 
scattered. If there are no new 
buildings, there are new looks, 
new colors, new partitions, new 
equipment. The school is larger 
than ever, and we must hold daily Chapel in Davis Hall, 
although we can still gather in the Chapel for Vespers. 

Mrs. Duncan is established as Director of Admissions. 
This year Abbot, as well as a great many other schools, will 
make its decisions about its candidates in the winter and 
notify them on February fifteenth. 

One other marked change comes with the retirement 
of Mr. Burton S. Flagg as Trustee and Treasurer. At Com- 
mencement time, Mr. Hunneman and Dr. Lovett, speaking 
on behalf of the Trustees, saluted him as Trustee and 
Treasurer-Emeritus and presented him with a commemor- 
ative scroll and a gold book-mark. It is impossible to 
enumerate the benefits that have accrued to Abbot during 
the fifty-eight years of his service as an officer of the school. 
His foresight, care and devotion have been given without 
stint to the school's interests. It is equally impossible to 
express our gratitude for what he has done.

Board of Trustees Notes 

Two new members were elected to the Board of Trustees in June, 
1964. We present them here with a brief biographical sketch: 




Everett Ware Smith 
Treasurer of the Board 

151 Dover Road 
Wellesley, Massachusetts 



Fabian Bachrach 

Senior Vice-President and member of Executive Committee of New 
England Merchants National Bank of Boston; graduate of Moses Brown 
School and B.S. from Yale University — Sheffield Scientific School; husband 
of Ruth Tyler Smith, Abbot 1932; son-in-law of Ethel Perley Tyler, 
Abbot 1898; father of Pamela, Karen, Nathaniel and Jonathan Smith;

Faculty Facts 




Miss Gertrude Tingiey retired in 
June after thirty years of teaching 
voice at Abbot to the great regret ot 
her students and colleagues. She was 
an important member of the depart- 
ment which maintained and increased 
the reputation of Abbot as outstand- 
ing in Music instruction and oppor- 
tunity. She has been responsible for 
developing many hidden musical 
abilities and for encouraging talented 
students to follow careers in singing. 
Her high standards of performance 
made her teaching most effective. Her 
sympathetic interest in the problems 
of her students helped many girls in their adjustment to life at Abbot 
and in the world. Miss Tingley's interest in her students did not cease 
with their graduation — she followed them in their careers in music, 
business or at home. 

The many Abbot alumnae who knew her will be glad to know 
that she will continue to teach at her studio in Boston. We all wish 
her every happiness. 

We regret to report that several faculty members have not re- 
turned this year. Miss Dorothy Dains, a member of the Mathematics 
Department since 1958, is now teaching at the Master's School. Mrs. 
Matthew Novak, Mrs. Crane's secretary, has moved to Charlotte, North 
Carolina with her family. Miss Elizabeth Nields of the English De- 
partment and Miss Barbara Keener of the Science Department are 
continuing their studies. 

Mrs. John H. Sisson returns to the English department after a 
year's leave of absence. 

There are several new faculty members. Miss Helen Smith, who 
will teach physics and science, received her B.S. degree from Central 
Connecticut State College and an M.S. degree in education from Cornell 
University. Miss Smith has previously taught at the Chaffee School in 
Connecticut and the Cleveland Heights High School. 

Miss Sylvia Kuzminski who is a graduate of Merrimack College, 
will teach mathematics. Miss Kuzminski has done graduate work 
at the University of New Hampshire and comes to Abbot from the 
Plaistow, N.H. school system. 

Miss Louise Shaw joins the Physical Education Department and 
is a 1964 graduate with a B.S. degree in Education from Tufts College 
(Bouve-Boston School of Physical Education). 

Mrs. Richard Abbott of Andover has been appointed secretary to 
the principal. 

Mrs. Marjorie Hutton will be resident assistant in Draper Hall 
and will do part-time work in the school library. Mrs. Hutton recently 
was on the staff of Rosemary Hall in Greenwich, Conn.

I am delighted to know that there are so many alumnae daughters 
and relatives entering Abbot this fall. This constant stream contributes 
to the continuity which characterizes a strong school and indicates the 
place that Abbot holds in the minds and hearts of its old girls. The 
alumnae can be confident that although there are inevitably many 
changes since their day, the fundamental aims and qualities remain 
an "Ever-fixed mark." 

Since my first graduating class — 1937 — twenty-seven years have 
passed and now each year, daughters of the girls I knew will be entering 
college (as well as Abbot) and will be visiting colleges before they make 
their choice. Doubtless many of you will be coming to see Wellesley 
and when you do, remember that I live in Wellesley, quite near the 
college, and if possible do call me up and give me the pleasure of seeing 
you and your daughter. The address is 47 Cottage Street, the telephone, 
Cedar 5-2703, and if you need to use the telephone book, remember 
that my last name has an 'A' in it! 

Yours, with many good wishes, 

Marguerite Hearsey

ABBOT DEVELOPMENT FUND 

1963 - 1964 

Gifts to the Abbot Development Fund totaled $58,571.28 lor 1963- 
1964. This sum is larger than in any previous year. 

These gifts have enabled the Trustees to appropriate the following 
amounts toward the 1964-1965 budget: 

Faculty Salaries $30,000

Laboratory and classroom

The financial assistance derived from annual giving is a vital part

of the school in present-day Abbot and its future growth. 

My thanks to all of you who gave so generously, especially E. 
Benjamin Redfield, Jr., Development Fund Chairman, Stuart D. Watson, 
Parents' Chairman, Mary Howard Nutting, '40, Alumnae Chairman, 
and the Class Fund Secretaries to whom much of the credit for the 
success of the program is due. 

Robert I. Hunneman

around. Connie and her husband played 
Shakespeare in Burlington, Vt. I had a 
brief visit with Liz Micoleau Tillinghast 
last March, when she accompanied her 
husband here on a business trip." 

The class extends its sympathy to Carol 
Grosvenor Myers whose husband, Dr. 
Walter K. Myers, nationally known heart 
specialist, died August 29 of heart disease. 
He donated his last two years of ailing 
life to research. He occupied his bed, 
off and on, for the last two years giving 
his body and his medical knowledge 
to studies on the processes of heart disease. 
For heart researchers, he became a daily 



diary of chemical and functional changes 
taking place in the heart patient. 

Mary Henderson Lee writes, "We moved 
to Spartanburg, S.C. two years ago when 
my husband's company, Cryovac, pulled 
up stakes and came down. I teach Latin

featured in a newspaper article, and was

Hello, May is here again! No, you 
haven't received a back issue. I missed 
last May's deadline due to an error in 
dates. 

Lucy Beebe Tobias and family are in 
Seattle, Washington where Joel has a 
general surgery residence at the same 
hospital at which he interned. This 
pleases them greatly since Lucy and Joel 
hope to settle in the area which also 
offers many opportunities for camping 
and fishing. The Tobias family has num- 
bered four since January 23, when a 
second son, Martin Gabriel, arrived. 

Another classmate in the West, Nance 
Davison Miller, is kept quite busy these 
days tending her daughter, Cathy, who 
moves "80 mph speed". Duane started 
private practice in July in the San Jose 
area — "You couldn't pay us enough to 
leave this area", writes Nance. However, 
she and Duane do hope to venture East 
for a World's Fair visit next year. 

In June of 1963, Marcia Colby Frame's 
husband, Hank, embarked on a new 
career as a salesman for Magnetic Seal 
Corporation with a territory from Boston 
to Washington, D.C. Thus, to be in the 
middle of his territory, the Frames have 
purchased a house in Ridgefield, Conn., 
after a "final fling of independence" on 
a Bermuda vacation. But their biggest 
news is the arrival of their first bundle of 
joy, William Michael, last October 18th. 
As Marcia sums up in her letter, "It's 
been quite a year of change for us — new 
job, new home, and our beautiful baby 
boy, is, of course . . . the event that has 
made us the happiest." Marcia's address is 
6 Tanton Hill Rd., Ridgefield, Conn. 

Both Pat Bijur Carlson and her hus- 
band are doing graduate work at the 
University of Illinois. Pat is studying 
philosophy and her husband is in the 
classics department. 

I received a nice note from Penny Post's 
Mother, catching us up with Penny's 
whereabouts. After receiving her M.Ed. 
at Harvard, Penny taught school in Massa- 
chusetts before leaving for Europe last 



April where she studied History of Art at 
Cambridge University in England. The 
latest report, Penny is back in the states 
and recently attended her brother's wedd- 
ing. 

Dinah Hallowed, who also has been 
in Europe, returned home after a de- 
lightful two years of studying at the Uni- 
versity of Munich and at language schools 
in Spain. While there, she spent Christmas 
with Emmy Meyer Michalopoulus and is 
godmother for Emmy's daughter, Thanai. 
These days Dinah may be found working 
at the Museum of Modern Art and living 
at 45 East End Ave., New York, N.Y. 

Louisa Lehmann Birch and Family 
(daughter Sarah was born December 5th) 
have left sunny California and returned

the Harvard Business School. 

Ellen Parker reports she is very busy 
with her job at Design Research in 
Cambridge. She has moved to New York 
to work in their new store. 

Joan Plowden Younce's husband has 
been transferred to the Mobil office in 
Oklahoma City. All the family is enjoy- 
ing their new home. In June, Joanie and 
Gordon flew to Nassau. 

Sue Rairdon Allen is living in New York 
City where Tom is working for Young 
and Rubican. Sue's daughter, Katie, is 
now two and a half, and, needless to say, 
"More fun every day." 

Another of our world travelers, Carol 
Gaines, returned from Europe last Jan. 
after a wonderful two years, and she hopes 
to return again soon. Recently she's been 
keeping house for her parents who have 
had several operations (hope all is well 
now) besides doing research in American 
History. The city beckons, however, and 
soon Carol will begin job hunting in New 
York. 

Last Spring Jackie Goodspeed vaca- 
tioned in the Virgin Islands and wrote 
that she loves the place more each visit. 
This year she arrived in time for carnival 
so had an especially exciting time. 

On June 20th Carolyn Cooper walked 
down the aisle, so she spent much of last 
spring in the delightful business of wedd- 
ing plans. Carolyn's husband, Courtney 
Freeland Bird, Jr. of West Newton, Mass. 
is a graduate of Governor Dummer and 
Middlebury College. He is a candidate 
for his master's degree at the University 
of Rhode Island.

[29 



Daley Rothrock, '58, was one of the 
bridesmaids. Larry attended Harvard. 

Judy Botnick has also become involved 
with wedding plans! Her engagement was 
announced in August and my crystal ball 
tells me the groom-to-be is John Carmody 
of Petersham, Mass. who graduated in 
1961 from Yale and is a 4th year student 
at Harvard Medical School. A December 
wedding is planned if John's busy sched- 
ule permits. 

The most exciting news from the Lewis 
household is the arrival of number one 
son, Peter Ripley, last November 15th. He 
was 22 days late, but his proud Mommy 
and Daddy feel he was well worth wak- 
ing for. We will be at Dover Air Force 
Base until April when John will return to 
civilian law practice in Philadelphia. 
Currently John is conducting court raar- 
tials for the Air Force and clerking part- 
time for the Chief Justice of the Delaware 
Supreme Court. Though most of my time 
is spent in the delightful task of caring 
for our son, I spend a few hours weekly 
with a Girl Scout troop, a Sunday School 
Class, and The League of Women Voters. 

That's all for this issue, but please keep 
your letters and notes coming. My son 
likes to play with the envelopes and I 
enjoy being able to pass on your news to 
everyone. Let's have a class reunion each 
issue. 

Best to all, 
"Sammy" 
Cooper Road.

1964 

The Class of '64 having miraculously 
metamorphosed into the Class of '68, 
seems to have expended in the process a 
great deal of that excess energy that was 
finally released last June. 

A large number of us, inflicted with 
post-grad wanderlust, not only left Ando- 
ver behind, but the U.S. as well. Linda 
Pattberg went completely around the 
world, returning to the simple life on 
Sutton Place (her family has moved from 
Ridgefield). Margaret Deutsch must have 
rivaled that feat, for the last I heard, she 
had encountered Miss Smith in Istanbul. 
Suzanne Woodward "tripped over Miss 
Friskin and Miss Tinker in London while 
on a family trip through England, Scot- 
land, and Greece, where she spent six 
weeks living with a Greek girl. Also in 
Europe, were Sue Trafton and Pat Mor- 



[33 



ril. Sue bicycled and Pat, after stopping 
at Stratford-on-Avon, studied for a month 
at the University of Grenoble, then joined 
a tour of college students through Italy, 
Switzerland, and France. Joan Harney, 
besides romping around Oslo, spent three 
weeks traveling in northern Norway, 
Sweden, and Finland. Studying the "Mex- 
ican mind", and nearly becoming Eine 
Deutsche Frau, was Melinda Bateman. 

However, the most awesome of all 
itineraries (excepting Linda's) was that 
of Barbara Hugon's trip through the 
States and Canada, visiting many Abbot 
people along the way. She wrote me a 
wonderful, long letter; I only wish I had 
room to include it all. Her stops, in order, 
were: New York, Connecticut, Williams- 
burg, Richmond, Atlanta, New Orleans, 
San Antonio, Santa Fe, The Grand Can- 
yon, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Yosemite 
Nat. Park, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, 
up the Puget Sound to Victoria, Van- 
couver, Lake Louise, through the Cana- 
dian Rockies, Edmonton, Yellowstone Nat. 
Park, Salt Lake City, Denver, Kansas 
City, Saint Louis, Chicago, Sewickley, 
Niagara Falls, Maine, Andover, Montreal, 
Ottowa, New London, Ct., Pelham, N.Y., 
and, finally, home to Cheshire. In closing, 
Barb said; "I am so glad that I had a 
chance to see so many people again before 
going home. I really will miss everybody 
and hope they come over here as soon as 
possible. It is good to be home again and 
to see everybody at this end of the world, 
but I feel very strange. Everyone laughs 
at the way I talk, eat, do things, and 
that I want to drive on the right hand 
side of the road . . . This summer has 
been fabulous and all that I had hoped 
for when I came over there. Miss you all, 
plus your country. Love, Barbara." 

Another happy wanderer was Judy 
Lang, who spent about six to eight weeks 
driving across the country, living on 
hamburgers and learning to economize. 

Pat Roversi and Friedel spent two and 
a half months waitressing on Nantucket. 
Friedel was also a delivery girl for the 
island newspaper, on a Lambretta, yet!

agency in order to earn money for a
